This gorgeous brass statue of Nataraja- King of Dance, is depicted as dancing in absolute bliss with four arms. The one-hand wields damru from which creation issues forth. The second hand is raised in blessing dispelling fear. The other hand holds a flame( Agni ), which is destruction, the dissolution of form. The right leg, representing obscuring grace, stands upon the head of Apasmara Purusha, a soul symbolises ignorance. The uplifted leg is revealing grace, which releases the mature soul from bondage. The fourth hand gestures toward that holy foot in assurance that Shiva's grace is the refuge for everyone- dance, rejoice and celebrate.
His hair locks seen in many strands. The Ganges nesting in Shiva's dreadlocks. The stunning fiery ring surrounding Shiva, Prahabhamandala, represents the universe. The outer edge is fire and the inner edge the waters of the oceans. Nataraja wears a snake coiled around his neck, arms, and other body parts. Delightful cobra around Nataraja's waist is kundalini shakti, the soul-impelling cosmic power resident within all. We take pride in the unique craftsmanship- it’s elegant and it’s flashy.
