This sculpture of Nataraja confronts the viewer with an image of divinity that is at once direct in its impact, yet cosmic in its implication. Not only this, with his slender, smooth legs, and elegant posture, he is the very epitome of beauty.

Shiva as Nataraja is the supremely handsome Lord of Dance, whose rhythmic movements are imbued with profound philosophical undertones. Shiva’s dance of bliss is as much pregnant with the possibility of destroying the world into extinction, as it is with recreating it through the same dance. The flames in the left hand signify the aspect of destruction, while the drum in the right symbolizes the energy of creation. The dwarf under the Lord's left feet stands for the darkness of ignorance which must be annihilated for true realization to dawn, the latter being symbolized by Shiva's rasied right leg.

This sculpture was cast in the city of Aligarh, in the central Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
