16" Dancing Shiva and Parvati In Brass | Handmade | Made In India

FREE Delivery

Tandava (Shiva’s dance) and Laasya (the dance of Parvati) are the most vibrant and highly reproduced themes in art when it comes to describing the proximity of the divine couple, Shiva and Shakti. The sophisticated and powerful movements of Shiva and Parvati are considered the source of all creation (through Laasya) and destruction (through Tandava). However, sometimes the motivation behind the harmonious dance of Shiva-Parvati is something apart from origination and annihilation.

The synchronized movements captured in this brilliant brass composite carry us to the pages of the 13th-century treatise on dance- Nritta Ratnavali. It mentions Natesh (God of Dance) Shiva teaching Laasya to Parvati. Enthralled by the possibility of being close to Parvati through dance, Shiva asks her to copy his moves. This heavenly togetherness of Shiva-Shakti is revealed here, in this brass dancing Shiva Parvati statue. Parvati, the active female aspect inspires and empowers Shiva to play his damru (drum) whose beats flow through Srishti (creation) whose personification is- Parvati. The slender and glistening limbs of Shiva and Parvati are adorned with beautiful jewelry. They wear tasteful dhotis (lower body garments) in the kaccha style whose pleats open charmingly in the shape of a fan between their legs. Creepers spring out of the upturned lotus-shaped platform, signaling the germination of life when Purush (Shiva) and Prakriti (Parvati) come together. The style of modeling, jewelry, hairstyle of the subjects, and their meditative expressions suggest that these brass idols are from Nepal, where Shaivism, centered on the reverence of Shiva and Parvati as the manifestation of the supreme consciousness is one of the oldest religious traditions. 


The Nritta Ratnavali describes this divine dance as an esoteric conversation between Shiva and Parvati, to remain hidden even from their children. Ganesh, the adored younger child is sometimes said to attempt and mimic the moves of his mother, providing parental bliss to Shiva and Parvati with this innocent endeavor. Oh, how similar we are, the children of Shiva and Shakti, looking at the activities of the universe in awe, at the rise and fall of life, whose tangible form is this dancing Shiva-Parvati statue!

How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?

Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.


Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.


  • Another way is to cleanse the statue with mild soap, warm water, and a cotton cloth. You must go to every inch of the statue and even to the crevices and cracks. After this, clean the article with a dry towel to wipe off pools of water left on the surface.


  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth.
