„Shiva experiment“

from the gallery of David Delany

this image was created in india inside one of the temples in Gujarat. There had been a terrible earthquake that year and I felt it at our ashram in Ahmadabad.
Lord Shiva is represented here by his constant companion the bull Nandi and a Shiva Lingam. You can learn more about the mythology elsewhere. Personally I found the image of Nandi and the Lingam to be strong and calming , friendly and smooth, lithe, agile, colorful and bright. And all this at a time of fear and suffering.
I think we can all relate to that so it remains one of my favorite images from a visit that changed the course of my life and art.
