The image is an exceptionally simplified form of Shiva. His multi-arms have been substituted by two arms but with such length as could be managed only when contained in folds. In one of his hands he is holding a trident and in the other, a small drum – damaru. His ears, nipples, eyes and legs all correspond to forms that tribal womenfolk render with clay on their mud-walls. The deity’s face reveals an unearthly sentiment.
