Shiva Dancing by Cynthia Rose Young

Oil on linen, 32x40
Shiva Dancing

The Hindu god of destruction, Shiva, dances in a delicate garden. This painting is an expression of the beauty of the darkness or the night of the soul.

The garden represents the place of creation, of harmony with the One, which will be approached again after the garments of the Old Self have been surrendered.

Star of Dawn  by Cynthia Rose Young

If we truly look, then we will be nourished.
