Shiva is the god of life and death, of destruction and rebirth. He is also a deity with many forms, depending on the needs of the world. For the artist here, Shiva is the inspired dancer, Natesha, fountainhead of all art forms.

Shiva's dance form elevated him to the position of Nataraja, a form wherein the arms whirled wildly, his flying locks crashed into heavenly bodies, and his steps split the mountains. We see Shiva dance over the body of Mahisa, who was eventually destroyed by Durga. In his right hand, he holds the trident, which represents the triad of the creator, preserver and the destroyer. The presence of the rattle drum is significant as it makes the final sound of death and produces the primeval reverberation of life. In his left hand, Shiva holds the fire that burns and destroys, yet illuminates and energizes. Shiva has snakes around his body, showing his power to deal with death and also to hold the sexual energy of Kundalini, the yogic serpent power. In the disheveled hair of Shiva can be seen the anthropomorphic form of river Ganga.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
