This is one of several murals in Be Here Now Yoga & Wellness, a yoga studio in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Washington, DC. The owners requested three Hindu gods - Ganesha, Shiva, and Hanuman, and a tree of life, all inspired by the style of Gustav Klimt. To design each god's mural, I researched Klimt's artwork as well as Hindu iconography and stories. For Shiva, I made his presence large in the room, but avoided making the room shrine-like, or making a piercing stare follow practitioners around the space. While Shiva has many aspects, I focused on his role as the god of yoga and the arts. Each element of the design is informed by my research.
