The tandava of Lord Shiva causes the downfall of Apasmara. The epileptic creature, personification of avidya (roughly translates to ignorance), lies powerless beneath the feet of the dancing Mahadeva, symbolic of the predominance of satyam (the eternal truth or wisdom). Also, the presence of Lord Shiva - with the creative Damru and the destructive flame in His posterior hands, in the centre of an aureole of a ring of flames - inspires the devotee with love and shraddha for the Lord (Shivam).
Finally, the aesthetics (sundaram) of this one-of-a-kind iconography is unparalleled in art anywhere in the world. From the mudra of His limbs and the curvaceous snakes wound around His body, the lateral prominences balance the long, lissome physique of the Lord. The flaying locks and a crown of multiple-hooded snakes frame the handsomely carved countenance. Note how the traditional multi-tiered pedestal adds balance to the Nataraja composition.
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.
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.
