Shiva as half man and half woman symbolizes the union of Power (man) and Prakriti (nurturer woman). It is the eternal fusion of energies – destroyer and the producer / restorer. Ardhanareshwar also known as “ardhanarinateswara” – the lord of dance, is a half woman. It goes as ‘Ammiappan’ in Tamil meaning ‘mother’ and ‘father’ and Ardhayuvatishvara in Assam.
