From the brilliantly coloured tigerskin loincloth to the bits of snake wrapped around His limbs and torso, there is much of the animalistic in the Lord Rudra ensemble. His body motions into the shape of the Nataraja.
Zoom in on different parts of His musculature to appreciate the lifelike detail of the same. Framed by gold kundalas and gorgeously flaying locks, His face has an expression of all-absorbing trance. In sharp contrast to which is the misery of apasmara (epileptic), who stands for avidya trodden under the tandava of Lord Rudra. Note the meticulousness with which he has been painted, unlike in most other similar compositions.
