Product description: Lord Murugan is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi, and referred to as the Hindu God of war. He is 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”. Tholkaapiyam, one of the ancient texts of Tamil literature also identifies Murugan as the red god, and the name Murugan means “youth”. He is known by several names and the most common names are Skanda, Kumara, and Karthikeya.
The wood panel depicts Murugan in a standing posture inside a prabhavali (arch) with a kirtimukha atop, along with the two makaras (Sea dragon) at the sides of the arch, and two Lions in the pillars. Murugan is adorned with beautiful ornaments, and a flower garland, and his vahana the peacock is seen standing behind him. The right hand of Murugan shows abhaya, and the Tamil alphabet OM is engraved on his palm. The weapon Vel is placed on his right, and positioned diagonal to his body while the left hand rests on his waist, a typical pose of Lord Murugan. The elegant frame and the charisma of Lord Murugan best illustrates the fine workmanship by our team of artists. Wall hanging hardware is attached to the panel.
