Four-armed Shiva dances the sacred “Cosmic Dance” within an arch of flames and stands atop a dwarf demon Apasmara that is representative of the dissolution of ignorance, holds in his back right hand a drum, which represents the rhythmic sound to which Nataraja dances and ceaselessly recreates the universe. The front right hand is in the mudra abhaya "fear not" gesture, back left hand carries agni (fire) in a vessel. His uplifted left foot grants eternal bliss to those who approach him. Southern India: 19th Century Size: 12” high
