Ardhnarishwar is a modern Madhubani painting inspired by Hindu Mythology. In this painting, Sanjib has made Ardhnarishwar Yantra on a colored background along with a lion with multiple snakes inside it. Here, the lion is the representation of Hindu Goddesses Parvati as she used a lion as her vehicle and snakes are the symbol of Lord Shiva depicted in a forest. Goddess Parvati despite being a traditionally calm personality rode a lion – an animal known for dominance and bravery. It speaks about her power as a woman and that of every woman afterward. In addition, Lord Shiva carries a snake around his neck – an animal for its vicious nature representative of modern problems. The Ardhnarishwar painting is a representation of how a successful household should be structured. A traditionally calm woman should be ready to be brave in the face of atrocities and the man working otherwise on other things should be able to share the burden of her problems. Whatever happens, whatever you have to do, you do it together.
