In spiritual artistry, Lord Shiva stands as a symbol of mysticism and profoundness. At The Star Murti Museum in Jaipur, we take pride in showcasing an array of Lord Shiva statues, each capturing a unique mudra (gesture). These mudras are not just artistic expressions but hold deep symbolic meanings. Understanding these can guide you in choosing the right statue for your home, office, temple, or altar.


The Essence of Mudras in Lord Shiva Statues

Mudras are symbolic hand and leg gestures that convey Shiva’s various attributes and energies. Each mudra has a specific purpose and invokes different feelings and energies in the space where the statue is placed.

Abhaya Mudra: The Gesture of Reassurance

The Abhaya Mudra, where Lord Shiva's hand is raised in a calming gesture, symbolises protection, peace, and dispelling of fear. It's perfect for homes or personal spaces, offering security and serenity.

Dhyan Mudra: Symbol of Meditation and Concentration

In Dhyan Mudra, Shiva is depicted meditatively, with hands resting in his lap. Ideal for meditation rooms or yoga studios, this mudra promotes an atmosphere of tranquillity and deep contemplation.

Anjali Mudra: The Gesture of Devotion

The Anjali Mudra, a posture of folded hands, signifies reverence and adoration. This gesture is suitable for temples and prayer rooms, encouraging devotion and respect.

Nataraja Pose: The Cosmic Dance

The Nataraja statue, depicting Lord Shiva’s dance, symbolises creation, preservation, and destruction. It's a powerful addition to artistic spaces or areas where dynamism and creativity are celebrated.

Rudra Mudra: The Gesture of Transformation 

The Rudra Mudra, showing a specific hand position, represents transformation and inner strength. It's suitable for office spaces or areas where focus and change are the driving forces.

Selecting the Right Mudra for Your Space

When choosing a Lord Shiva statue for your space, consider the energy you wish to invite. As every mudra holds a specific meaning, you can choose accordingly.

For Home Interiors

For a calming and protective atmosphere at home, opt for the Abhaya Mudra. If you seek to create a dedicated space for meditation, the Dhyan Mudra is your go-to.

For Office and Professional Environments

In office settings, the Rudra Mudra can inspire strength and transformation. The Nataraja pose works well in creative industries, symbolising the continuous flow of ideas and innovation.

For Spiritual and Religious Settings

Temples and altars find their match in the Anjali Mudra, fostering an environment of devotion and reverence. Nataraja poses also fit well in these spaces, representing the cosmic cycle.
