Significance of Lord Ram breaking Lord Shiva's bow

Pinaka or Shiv Dhanush was the bow of the Hindu god Shiva.

Vishvakarma crafted two divine bows. He gave Sharanga to lord Vishnu and pinaka to lord shiva, who killed the demon tripurasura with it.
The bow was broken by Ayodhya's prince Rama when he attempted to string the bow, during the swayamvara of Sita, thereby winning the princess's hand in marriage.
