The physical universe is therefore the body of Jupiter, Jehovah, Osiris, or Shiva.

Manly P. Hall / <cite>Lectures on Ancient Philosophy</cite>

In India, Shiva is often shown with his body a peculiar bluish white color. This is the result of smearing his person with ashes and soot, ashes being the symbol of death. Shiva is not only a destroyer in that he breaks up old forms and orders, but he is a creator in that, having dissolved an organism, he rearranges its parts and thus forms a new creature.
