Natraja Shiva (Bronze) 18.5″h, 16″w
Nataraja Shiva (Bronze) 18.5″h, 16″w. Shiva, the Auspicious One, is a supreme positive force, destroying evil, ignorance and death. In this image, He is depicted as Lord of the Dance. In a legend, He subdued 10,00 non-believers by dancing on the demon of ignorance. He dances in the flaming halo which symbolizes the cosmos. Beating on a drum with His right hand, He summons up a new creation.
This image is made of cold-cast bronze, a technique combining bronze powder with polyresin. The mixture of the two materials produces easy-to-handle figurines with the sophisticated and stunning look of actual museum and gallery pieces. It retains the beautiful luster of bronze while being much lighter and more affordable than fully bronze items.
