Dancing Nataraja Shiva “Cosmic Dancer” Statue
Dancing Nataraja Shiva Statue, a premium sculpted cold cast bronze by master sculptors, real bronze powder mixed with resin. Hand-painted in bronze finish with color accents to give a high-quality look without sacrificing the details. Hindu God Bholenath Shiva Idol, beautiful decor to display in your home office desk, library bookshelf, or meditation altar, a great addition to any Hindu collection. Shiva is frozen in the moment of his dance within the cosmic circle of fire that is the simultaneous and continuous creation and destruction of the universe. The ring of fire that surrounds the figure is the encapsulated cosmos of mass, time, and space, whose endless cycle of annihilation and regeneration moves in tune to the beat of Shiva’s drum and the rhythm of his steps. In his upper right hand he holds the Damaru, the drum whose beats syncopate the act of creation. Absolutely stunning, gorgeous Divine Meditating Shiva Cosmic Dancer Statue, a regal representation of Lord Shiva dancing.
Lord Shiva is a highly revered Hindu deity, who is the part of the great holy Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh/Shiva, the Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer). “Shiv” means Welfare. Shiva is not only a Lord but is also considered as the prime God in the Panchdev Pujan. This magnificent statue is a superb representation of Shiva as Nataraja, the Lord of Dance. It is a wonderful adaptation in the tradition of Indian Art and one of the most recognized icons of Hinduism in the world. Made with cold cast bronze, individually polished, antiqued, and painted with color accents, the definition and the intricate details of this piece are simply breathtaking. Nataraja is a depiction of the Hindu God Shiva as the divine cosmic dancer. His dance is called Tandavam or Nadanta, depending on the context of the dance.
The pose and artwork is described in many Hindu texts such as the Anshumadbhed agama and Uttarakamika agama, the dance murti featured in all major Hindu temples of Shaivism, and is a well known sculptural symbol in India and popularly used as a symbol of Indian culture, in particular as one of the finest illustrations of Hindu art. The sculpture is symbolic of Shiva as the lord of dance and dramatic arts, with its style and proportions made according to Hindu texts on arts. It typically shows Shiva dancing in one of the Natya Shastra poses, holding various symbols which vary with historic period and region, trampling upon a demon shown as a dwarf (Apasmara or Muyalaka) who symbolizes spiritual ignorance. Divine Meditating Shiva Cosmic Dancer Statue sizes: 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm x 3 inches / 7.5 cm.
