This Shiva statue was copied from a concrete Shiva statue situated on the Ganges. We did not have a full set of images of all viewpoints for the sculptors to use, so our graphic artist created a back view that the sculptors could copy. The Shiva was carved from a block of genuine solid white marble and took 2 months to complete. Several areas were ammended slightly so the design may be downsized from the 400cm original to a 135cm copy.
