Brahmā, Vishnu, and Shiva

27 September 2013

A trinity of Hindu gods:  Lord Brahma the the progenitor of all human beings, lord of speech and sound, and creator of the sacred Vedas,  Lord Vishnu the sustainer, the all-pervading essence of all beings, and governor of the universe, and Lord Shiva the destroyer, the transformer, and patron god of yoga and arts.

(A little Ganga, goddess of the Ganges river and liberator of the rebirth cycle,
 is hiding in his hair; the river Ganges flows from her mouth.)

... 20 faces done, 9 faces to go, 4 days left to draw them!

Your Hindu Trinity is true to the style of Hindu art - I especially love all of the details. The way you snuck Ganga in there was clever!
