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 to both see and be seen by Lord Shiva.

This old pair of Mukhalingas is from North Karnataka, and normal time-related wear can be found on them. The base of one of the mukhalingas is missing. 

Height of the mukhalinga with a base is 7 inches, whereas the one missing is 6 inches.
