Hand-carved from black marble in one piece.
The Shiva lingam denotes the primeval energy of the Creator.
Some yoga masters explain that there is a mysterious power in the Linga, its shape has been designed to induce concentration of the mind. Just as the mind is focused easily in crystal-gazing, so also the mind attains one-pointedness, when it looks at the Linga. That is why the ancient Rishis and the seers of India have prescribed Linga for being installed in the temples of Lord Shiva.
The smaller lingam is 12" long, 7" wide, and 10" in height, with a weight of 15 lbs.
The larger lingam is 18" long, 10" wide, and 13" in height, with a weight of 30 lbs.
