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.
