"Sadashiva" (2023) is inspired by my experience at the sacred Elephanta Caves in Gharapuri, off the coast of Mumbai in the Arabian Sea, during my first visit to the beautiful country of India in February 2023. These caves are a collection of temples predominantly dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, the divine cosmic dancer, who appears as the largest figure in this painting against a majestic backdrop of the Himalayan mountains.  This juxtaposition symbolizes both the contrast and closeness of the divine and the earthly, the eternal and the transient. The stone carvings of Shiva in the Elephanta Caves portray him in his tri-faced representation to embody the perpetual cycle of creation, preservation, and destruction.


Through this painting, I capture one of the many awe-inspiring moments of reverence that arises in the presence of God. The solidity and majesty of the mountains, with a backlit sky of golden light, remind us of the power of nature as a pathway to experience the divine.
