Description

Mukhalinga, literally means 'linga with a face'. The linga (or lingam) is an abstract representation of the Hindu god Shiva, seen as a symbol of energy. The mukha, is a covering used to give a face or iconic form to the abstract Shiva Lingam. Worshippers believed that the face would allow them to see, and be seen by Lord Shiva.
A highly unusual piece, this mukha linga is a representation of Khandoba, a manifestation of Lord Shiva in his warrior form. The brass piece from Maharashtra, is made more special by the serpent (naga) on the crown of the head. An old collectible, it is in good condition, having undergone normal, time related wear.
