The Kalamkari painting depicts Lord Murugan, the son of Lord Shiva in a nice way. Lord Murugan, son of Lord Shiva is especially popular among the Tamil population of South India. There is an ancient anecdote about the origin of Murugan. When Sati, the consort of Shiva immolated herself at the Daksha Yagna she was later reborn as Uma, or Parvati the daughter of the mountain king Himavaan (the Himalayas). Depressed over the loss of Sati, Lord Shiva engaged himself in yogic meditation in the Himalayas. However, in the meantime, a demon named Surapadman wraught havoc on earth causing untold miseries to human beings. The gods realised that only the son born of Shiva could lead the gods to triumph over Tarakasuran, Surapadman and their companions. As a result,they plotted with Kamadeva, to persuade Shiva and shoot a flower arrow at Shiva, when he was engrossed in deep meditation. The trick worked. When Kama shot his arrow, Mahadev opened his third eye and burned Kama to ashes instantly. The fire from Shiva's third eye were hard to extinguish and it was then carried by the river Ganges into the Saravana forest. There the fire was brought to a pond called Saravana Poigai. Out of the fire were born six children of Lord Shiva. Parvati combined these six babies into one with six faces, i.e. Shanmukha or Arumugan or Murugan. Murugan became the general of the demi-gods and led the gods to victory against the demons.
