6 pagesDate: November 22, 2021


Everything connected with the Hindu icon has a symbolic meaning; the posture, gestures, ornaments, number of arms, weapons, vehicle, consorts, and associate deities is Symbolic meanings. Icons can be defined as a sacred symbol that embodies a spiritual truth and is worthy of veneration and contemplation. A symbol can be natural or conventional. The study of Indian philosophy and aesthetics is very ancient and art has been used from a social and political point of view. Indian historical painting was a symbolic language. So there is a big difference between the experimentation with art and its conscious experimentation in modern times. The need for further study of the use of pictorial symbols in modern times is due to the changing social life and the impact of modernity on art. Studying in the field of art presents confusion about the subject of creative painting. While studying visual arts, we get to study many aspects of painting. Some of them are drawn intentionally and some from concepts. The shapes that are drawn in the paintings are somewhere related to the artist's mentality. Symbolic meanings of various rituals and paraphernalia are first given in the Brahmanas and Aranyaka's, and later the iconic symbols are explained in the various Puranas such as Shrimad Bhagavatam, Vishnu Purana, Śiva Purana; Upanishads such as Gopala Uttara-tāpini Upanishad. According to Hindu Iconology Symbols are not limited to the shape or shape of the eyes, but the subject is not limited to the scope of each person. Symbols have been associated with each person since childhood. The ability to think is not developed. Symbolic feelings are formed in the mind by acquiring knowledge through awareness.
