Shiva is one of the most important and popular gods of India. He has a large following and a number of temples are dedicated to him. Shiva, the Mahayogi, is also Nataraja, the Lord of Dancers. Shiva, in his dance manifestation, is the Cosmic Dancer and gives manifestation to eternal energy. Through his frantic motions, he generates the powers of evolution, maintenance and dissolution of the world.

The Nataraja Shiva carries a drum in the upper left hand. This connotes sound, the vehicle of speech. The upper right hand of Nataraja bears on its palm a tongue of flames. At the end of the Kali Age, fire will consume creation. While the drum is symbolic of the act of creation, the flame of fire is suggestive of destruction. The second left hand of Shiva is in the protection attitude. Shiva dances on the prostrate body of the dwarf Apasmara Purusha who symbolizes ignorance or darkness. The darkness of ignorance can be destroyed by the attainment of knowledge, which releases man from the bondage of existence.

In most images, the figure of Nataraja is encompassed by a ring of flame, but in this bronze sculpture, the sculptor chose to do away with it. As a result there is clarity in each movement and shape without being clouded by the prominent ring of flames. It also adds a certain starkness to the composition, appropriate to Lord Shiva’s ascetic nature.

Testimonials

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
