Product description: Lord Murugan is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi, and commonly known as the “Tamil God” and is worshipped by Tamil communities throughout the world. Tamil sangam literature glorifies Murugan as the “Red God seated on a blue peacock, young and beautiful”. Shiva is called Panchaanana, meaning the Lord with five heads. These five heads represent the five elements of nature, namely, Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. These five elements combine with Shakti (Pure Consciousness), and Lord Murugan was born. He is called Shadaanana means the six-headed. The wood panel of Arupadaiveedu portrays the six abodes of Lord Murugan, namely Thiruparankundram, Thiruchendur, Palani, Swamimalai, Thiruthani and Pazhamudircholai. The poet Nakeerar of the Sangam Age has sung many songs in praise of Murugan, and the most well known composition called “Tirumurugartrupadai” describes the six most important abodes of Lord Murugan. The panel is designed with keen attention to details, given to each abode emphasizing their accurate representation. The overall composition of the wood carving serves as a testament to the skill of the artist who made the software model, and the artistry of the woodcarver who achieved the intricate details using his masterful carving technique, combines together to create a captivating and evocative representation of the six abodes of Lord Murugan. Wall hanging hardware is attached to the panel. Read more about Arupadaiveedu.
