Shiva As Nataraja

Shiva As Nataraja
Shiva literally means "the auspicious one". In Hinduism, he is known as the Destroyer within the Trimurti, the Hindu trinity, that includes Brahma and Vishnu. In Shaivism tradition, Shiva is one of the supreme beings who creates, protects and transforms the universe. One of his titles, Nataraja, is a depiction of Shiva as the divine dancer. His dance form is called Tandavam or Nadanta, depending on the context.

Here, the prancing moments of the amazing Shiva are encapsulated fantastically in an exotic brass statue along with an Inlay pattern that carves itself in astounding fashion providing it a circular, floral frame that compliments the dance movements of the Nataraja as he comfortably sets him up on a dwarfy figure that depicts ignorance.

The sculpture finely gives perfect fashion to the facial features of the deity, complimenting them by a Teeka that is adorned between its delicately carved eyebrows, as it is enveloped in vibrant clothes with hues of exquisite red, blue and green colours, festooned with serpents, that form an illuminating aureole around his head. The deity blesses the Hindus with his flower-embellished right hand and the other two hands support him to dance, while the exotic tail of his dress hovers in the air for an eternity, as he enjoys the rhythm, with each sway.
