Lord Shiva is revered as one of the Supreme Beings who creates, protects and transforms the universe. He as a great acetic concentrates on meditation as a means to find perfect happiness. This brass statue depicts Lord Shiva performing his cosmic Tandava called Anandatandava, on a stylized lotus pedestal; although posture of his legs is unusually carved while in Tandava, but the hand mudra and that expression of eternal bliss symbolizes the cosmic rhythm of birth and death. The vibes arousing from this dance creates an interplay of dynamic and static flow of divine energy.

Shiva is garbed in a short golden dhoti chiseled in beautiful patterns along with a thick ethnically carved kamarband that has its ends flowing from the sides; along with an ornamentation of lavish jewels, he is also ornated with serpents, coiled around his hand and leg as a symbol of him overpowering death (snake symbolizes death).
