Hindu Lord Shiva Nataraja Garden Sized Statue
Within the arch of flames, Shiva dances. Shown as the source of all movement within the cosmos, the purpose of the dance is to release humans from the illusion of the physical world.
The gestures of the cosmic dance represent Shiva's five activities: creation (symbolized by the drum), protection (by the 'fear not' hand gesture), destruction (by the fire), embodiment (by the foot planted on the ground), and release (by the foot held aloft).
As the Lord of Dance, Shiva represents destruction and creation as he transforms the illusory world of Maya into power and enlightenment.
