SIVA (destroyer) ± dressed in clothes of trhe wilderness (tree bark/animal skin); living in remote
mountain areas ± wild looking ± long matted locks ± body smeared with ash; surrounded by wild
animals, snake around his neck ± symbolically underscore his association with the wild (anti-
social) immersed in an intense religious practice ± third eye on his forhead ± when the third eye
opens (usually closed) signals apocalyptic destruction
- gods find sivas threatening because asceticism is giving him power
