A Nataraja sculpture of remarkable proportions. Designed to be installed in the home or office space for worship by the finest modern-day devotee. The name Nataraja is derived from ‘nata’, which means dance and refers to any of the classical performing arts, and ‘raja’, which means king. As such, it is the epithet of the dancing roopa (form) of the great Lord Shiva.
The dancing Shiva is captured in the throes of His tandava. It is all-encompassing, all-annihilating, and gives birth anew. That specific mudra of the anterior hands, the signature elements in the posterior ones. One leg raised mid-air, the other pressing down upon the avidya-roopi (personification of ignorance) Apasmara. A solemn composure, a divinely handsome face; and the unmistakable presence of the snake.
The flaying locks of the dancing Shiva statue and the flame-lined aureole complete the unmistakable Nataraja idol image. Sculpted from pure brass, this Natraj murti has a resplendent gold finish that conveys the cosmic glamour of Natraj Shiv.
