One of the most popular manifestations of Shiva, as Nataraja, depicts Shiva
dancing in a ring of fire. Dancing the cosmic dance 'tandava', he has his
right leg firmly planted on the back of Apasmara Purusha, the symbol of
ignorance. What is notable is that despite the violence of the dance, his
expression is detached. His left leg is raised high up in a slant and the
right one on Apasmara is bent at the knee. The back two hands hold the
damaru and a ball of fire each. While Shiva's right hand is raised in abhaya
mudra, the left hand comes across his body in a gaja hasta mudra. Owing to
the violent movements, his hair flows in all directions as do the ends of his
waist sash, touching the tiruvasi. A serpent also uncoils from his body,
with his hood on this circle of fire. Inconspicuous, but very much present
is Ganga, on top of his hair.
This beautifully crafted image is placed on a well decorated pedestal.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes.
J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months.
As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges.
My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
