Need help identifying the deity in the below image. I’m thinking this is image of Shiva sitting in the cremation grounds?
This is certainly an image of Lord Shiva , who is one among the triad gods (Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva).
This is well conformed when we look at it. It clearly shows some distinct features of Lord Shiva as we know from his description from scriptures like
Trident and Damaru (a musical instrument) in his hand.
Crescent moon on his head.
A third eye on his forehead.
Rudraksha on wrist and around neck.
Snakes wrapped around neck.
We can also see the Shiva- Lingas on the side of the image which further confirms that its Shiva.
A little description about painting and painter.
Quick reverse image search takes us to the original source of the Image and it's artist.
This is a painting drawn by well known Nepali artist Sudarshan Suwal. He is renowned thangka painter. In Thangka method paintings are painted by ground mineral paints with hand.He paints images of the tantric practices of Kashmir Shaivism with those from the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition.
So this is Tantrik Image of Lord shiva painted in Buddhist and Hindu iconography in thangka style and mostly related to Kashmir Shaivism.
