The painting depicts Ardhanarishwara a specific form of Shiva wherein Uma/Shakti his wife exists as left part of his body. Shiva and Shakti represents Purusha and Prakriti or Ishwara and his Maya shakti. Hence, the form of Ardhanarishwara depicts the eternal unity of Purusha and Prakriti. The Shiva's portion is red in color and is wrapped in tiger skin. The Shakti portion is black and is adorned with ornaments.
