Sam from Chennai, India

What a beautiful painting of Lord Shiva. Love it, Devi.
A great angle and a fine composition. Excellent.
Thank you very much for your kind words, Devi. :)

16 Oct 2013 6:38pm

@Sam: Thank you Sam:))) I think this is the best painting of Lord Shiva on any temple wall. The artist must have been a very blessed person!! This is at the Panchavarneshwarar Temple, Thiru Nallur( some 20 kms. from Kumbakonam , where the Lingam changes colour every naazhigai. We have have gone there at various times of the day to see the different colours. From silver to gold to copper to emerald green and then a colour that you are able to see...whatever that's there in your mind!! ) The Lingam is a piece of the Kailasa mountain. They keep sadaari here on our head. yes Saint Thirunavukkarasar came here and the Lord cured him of illness by keeping His Feet on his head..
