Shiva, Parvati and Ganesha Vintage Reverse Glass Hindu God Painting with Carved Wood Frame

Shiva and Parvati are often shown as sitting in happy, intimate embrace. Shiva taught Parvati on Vedanta (transcendent knowledge), while Parvati tought him Sankhya (cosmological knowledge).


Shiva and Parvati's son is Ganesha. He creates the faith to remove all obstacles, forcing one to look beyond form, pointing out the spiritual side of everything. Ganesha is often worshipped to remove obstacles.


Here's a little bit of history about reverse glass paintings...The flourishing trade relations between East India Company and China brought the art of glass painting to India in the 1700s. With reverse glass painting, the artist works on the back of the glass, painting backwards to create the work. The paint designs are first outlined, the paint is applied, and then it is fired onto the glass using a kiln. The heat of the kiln ensures the paint bonds with the glass. Indian glass paintings are a traditional art form known for their brilliance, clarity and use of rich colors featuring women, popular legends, and Hindu iconography.


This painting is 40+ years old. Exact date unknown. Please note this vintage devotional glass artwork has gone through as many monsoons (with months of humidity), so it has some staining that comes with history and age.


The hand carved frame is new, and made of mango wood. It is a lovely original piece.
