This is Rishi Bhringi depicted with three legs, pointed beard and having a skeleton-like body.

A great devotee of Bhagwan Shiva.

1/n
Story of Bhringi Rishi and why he has 3 legs is an intresting one as it explains the importance of
ShivaShakthi & also teaches Shiva and Shakthi are inseparable.

Bhringi Rishi worshipped Shiva only, ignoring goddess Parvathi(Shakti).

2/n
One day Bhringi along with several other Rishis visited Kailash.All the Rishis worshipped both Shiva & Parvati,did pradakshina around them.
But Bhringi Rishi prayed ,did pradakshina and bowing to Bhagwan Shiva,ignoring Goddess Parvati.

A Ramachandran is a prolific #artist of our times, his colours and themes brighten up our lives. Didn’t know that despite major eyesight ailment he had continued to paint. Don’t miss out on the fantastic watercolours and prints in the @mumbai_ngma exhibition which has it all Image
Sensitive and intelligent curation by none other than the super awesome R Siva Kumar! And, those sculptures made by the artist while he’s saying in the interview that he preferred painting to sculpting though he was taught by the greatest of all, Ram Kinkar Baij
His encounter with #Rajasthan, #Nagda #sculptures #Nathdwara #artists. That lotus pond which is imprinted in his mind forever. one of the best examples of eloquent curation& sheer poetry as you traverse it.Thanku #ARamachandran #RSivaKumar, you leave us with magic @DiviaPatel1

#GobekliTepe‘s monumental T-pillars are actually giant #anthropomorphic sculptures. Got to admit that in the beginning of my work there, more than 12 yrs ago, I found it quite ... challenging to recognize this likeness. Until we finally excavated the 'hands & loincloth' part ...
Of course #NevaliCori‘s pillars were already known for some time, complete with hands and stola-like garments. But their abstracted and stylised appearance (still impressively expressionistic to me, by the way) made it a bit of a challenge to easily accept their human shape.
Why am I telling all this? Because there is another find which early on helped me better seeing and understanding this human likeness. I am, of course, talking about the so-called #Kilisik-sculpture found near #Adiyaman in Turkey in the 1960s.
