About Lord Shiva
Lord Shiva is known by many names, but one of them is “The Destroyer” who creates, protects and transforms the universe. Part of his iconic look is having a serpent around his neck, which can be connected to mythology where one of the prime snake deities threatened to spread destruction across the seas, Lord Shiva saved the day by drinking the poisonous venom.
