Bhairava ragini

Shiva sits on a tiger skin with a prayer beads in his left hand. He has a halo behind his head with a crescent moon in it. The river Ganges curves from his head to the ground. A snake coils around his neck and a chain of skulls hangs around his neck. His trident with pennant and drum attached to it stands against a tree. Parvati sits with his hands in reverence beside him. In the left foreground is Shiva’s mount, the bull Nandi. The image is applied on a transparent animal skin.
