Ardhanarishvara (Indian Madhubani)

Pen and Ink, 2017

Ardhanarishvara is the composite male-female figure of the Hindu god Shiva together with his wife Parvati. Together, these unified divinities represent the synthesis of masculine and feminine energies in the process of creation. Ardhanarisvara is depicted as half-male and half-female, split evenly down the middle upon a central axis. This Hindu deity symbolizes the inseparability of the feminine aspect of the divine with the male principle of God.

According to some schools of though Ardhanarishvara could also represent the ineffible genderless nature of of God beyond human distinctions.
