About: lord shiva is a hindu deity and represents the aspect of the supreme being. The meaning of the sanskrit word shiva is'pure and destroyer'. According to hindu mythology, shiva is the destroyer among the trimurti.He is the god of the yogi's and described as an omniscient yogi, who lives an ascetic life on mount kailash. Lord shiva has a snake winded around his neck and sometimes looping at the head known as vasuki "the ruler of the sarpas" as indicated in puranas. He was conceived as the second child of kashyapa and kadru, the oldest being adisesha. As indicated by the puranas, during churning of the ocean(samudra manthan), the lethal toxin (halahala) turned out which shiva needed to drink to spare the world. There were a few snakes in the water who drunk it with him and vasuki was one of them. Vasuki likewise filled in as the rope that was attached to mandar mountain during the churning of the ocean.
Shiva was intrigued by this and henceforth acknowledged vasuki (lord of sarpas) around his neck. Weight- 4.318 kg(approx).
