Shiva represents authority over demonic forms and is a bringer of calm and peace. His plaited hair holds the flowing Ganges River, and he wears a headpiece with a crescent moon badge, representing renewal. A serpent coiled around his neck symbolizes Shivaﾒs mastery of the spiritual forces within him and his ability to overcome death. Beneath the snake, you can see some of the 108 beads of the Rudraksha necklace, the elements used in the worldﾒs creation. Shivaﾒs weapon is a trident: the prongs standing for will, action and knowledge. He has four arms. The hand near his head blesses and awakens wisdom. The second holds a ﾑkamandaluﾒ, a gourd of nectar, symbolizing the bliss attained though meditation (look at Shivaﾒs half-closed eyes to see that he is meditating all the while). The third hand grasps the trident, leaving the fourth to hold a disc which represents the endless wheel of time. Shiva sits on a tiger skin, depicting the cruelity of nature over which he is master. The skin is draped over the back of Nandi, Shivaﾒs faithful bull. Within this box figurine you will see a half-open Third Eye, symbolizing spiritual awakening and the destruction of evil. Sculptor Ann Richmond has incorporated three additional secrets. Under Nandiﾒs right front leg is the inscription 08/05/06 and Kula. The fab English band with Indian influences, Kula Shaker, recently reformed and Ann was privileged to attend their intimate performance in Bristol. Below Nandiﾒs back leg is a birthday wish for Annﾒs friend, Rita. And Annﾒs cheeky hare, Rufus, can be seen peeking out from Nandiﾒs collar.

We ship worldwide and have considerable expertise in international shipping, based on many years of experience.
International buyers may communicate with us in English or in their own language, which we will translate using an online interpreter.
International customers may pay via credit card, PayPal, or international money order (denominated in US dollars). All layaway options are available to international buyers.
All international orders, regardless of value, will be shipped at their actual cost, which will be billed to the buyer. When you place your order, the shopping cart will inform you as to the shipping cost of the order. Any customs duties, taxes, or brokerage charges imposed by the importing country are the responsibility of the buyer. You will be able to view the actual shipping cost of your international order in the checkout area, prior to finalizing your order.
We use the US Postal Service (USPS) for all international shipments. Our default shipping method is Priority Mail International (PMI) insured, which takes 6 to 10 business days to most international destinations. If a buyer requests faster shipping, we ship Express Mail International (EMI), which takes 3 to 5 business days. In the case of orders valued at less than $30, we are prepared to ship First Class International, if the customer requests this, but this is with the understanding that there is no tracking or insurance on orders shipped First Class.
If you have any questions about international orders, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us toll free (from Canada only) at 1-877-879-6220 or (from all other countries) at 1-925-798-2700.
