Handcrafted Polished Brass Gangadhara Shiva in Meditation (Dhyan) with Mata (Goddess) Ganges on His Heads and Removable Trishul Statue. This is a Very Unique Piece and is Absolutely Amazing in Detail and Expression.
Once upon a time, Ganges used to flow only in heaven. During a time of great calamity and endless draught king Bhagiratha did a great penance. Pleased with his selfless sacrifice, Ganges agreed to descend from heaven to the Earth. But the force of water, as the Ganges descended to Earth would have caused a greater destruction. That's when Lord Shiva came to everyone's rescue and bore the brunt of the descending Ganges' force on his divine head of matted hair, letting the divine river on Earth. He has since been known as Gangadhara, the bearer of the Ganges.
