Lord Shiva - The Destructor and Re-Creator by 

Pralaya -

In Hinduism and Buddhism, the third eye is a symbol of enlightenment. In the Indian tradition, it is referred to as the jnana-chaksu, the eye of knowledge, which is the seat of the ‘teacher inside’ or antar-guru. The third eye is the ajna chakra (sixth chakra) also known as brow chakra or brow centre

This is commonly denoted in Indian and East Asian iconography with a dot, eye or mark on the forehead of deities or enlightened beings, such as Shiva, the Buddha, or any number of yogis, sages and bodhisattvas. This symbol is called the “Third Eye” or “Eye of Wisdom”, or, in Buddhism, the urna.

It is believed that the opening of Lord Shiva’s third eye causes the eventual destruction of the universe. I am depicting Lord Shiva with an open eye which leads to Pralaya or “End of the universe.”

Have used Graphite pencil, Pastels and Pencil colors on paper.
