Nataraja

Om Namah Sivaya !!

This graceful form of Shiva is infused with such artistic grace that it has come to represent all in Indian art, dance and music. It possesses fluidity and flow of dance, purity of music and beauty of art.  In this remarkably standardized form, the god is shown dancing within a flaming halo (prabha mandala) which represents Time and which is shown as a circle to symbolize the Hindu belief that it is both cyclical and without end.  This statue is 38 inches from base to top of the tallest flame and weights 45 kg. The beautifully carved double ring of fire is 32 inches in width.  It is a classic example of the Chola Lost Wax Bronze casting process. The hundreds of hours of human energy in the form of wax molding, casting, rough/fine filing and the final detail chiseling shine through in the completely unique face of this Siva Nataraja, truly one of a kind.  The ornate nature of this particular Nataraja with its double ring and bells over the top of Siva will grace your studio, pooja room or any place of reverence you provide.  This form of the Nataraja is considered most notable of documented Nataraja forms within the Tandava series of dance postures.  Nataraja’s right foot stands on Apasmara (ignorance personified), who is armed with dagger and a detailed tiny shield. Shiva’s left foot is raised in dance movement.  A simple yet elegantly detailed belt tied around his torso is shown flowing to his left and an alert Cobra slithers down his right arm to rest against the ornate fire ring. He holds Damaru (hourglass drum) in his upper right hand and Agnishikha (flame) in left. His lower right hand is gestured in Abhaya Mudra (assurance or granting fearlessness) and left hand dangles down, relaxed gracefully in Gajahasta Mudra. He wears his hair as a crown, studded with stork feathers. His free-flowing hairs bear Ganga depicted as a mermaid on the right side and a snake on the left.  The sculpture stands upon a beautiful, pedestal of lotus and rectangular bottom base.
