Artist's description:

Latest painting in my cancer series: "Shiva Destroys Cancer" - the symbolism behind this is obvious. Shiva in one of his incarnations is hermaphrodite. I played off of this tradition to create a female Shiva who has undergone a mastectomy. In Hindu tradition, Shiva dances destruction against Ravena; in this painting, Shiva destroys cancer. This symbolizes to me a powerful, strong version of the feminine. Notice how relaxed her face is despite the vast forces of destruction she unleashes. Shiva fights the evil of the world but the evil does not touch her.
