Natraja is the visually breathtaking form of lord Shiva as a cosmic dancer. Here, Shiva substantiates those universal physical attributes as he gets engrossed in the mystical dance. Inside the infinite circle of fire dances the concomitant creator and destructor of the universe. The ring of fire symbolizes time, and space, whose continuous circle of collision and restoration dances in harmony to the rhythm of Shiva’s damru (drum)and the beat of his dance steps. In his upper right hand, he holds the damru, whose beat dance it the cadence of the passage of time and regeneration.
This magnificent handmade Natraja is composed of Madhuchista Vidhana (Lost-Wax) as well as Panchaloha Bronze from Swamimalai that magnifies the appeal of the sculpture. We can see Nataraja swaying while staying immersed in the pulse of his damru. Standing on a demon, Natraja speaks of killing our inner ego, the negativity that stops us from following the life that we’re passionate about. His right uplifted foot on the other hand indicates the eternal blessings that he bestows upon his worshippers.
