The Hindu god Shiva in this form is known as the cosmic dancer. The most common images show him with four arms and flying locks, dancing on a dwarf (a symbol of human ignorance) and encircled by a ring of flames.The Nataraja sculpture shows Shiva as the source of all movement within the cosmos, represented by the loop of flames. The dance's purpose is to release humans from illusion; the place where the god performs the dance is believed to lie both at the centre of the universe and within the human heart.The upper right hand holds a hour-glass drum which is a symbol of creation of the universe. The opposite hand, the upper left, bears on its palm a tongue of flames. (Symbolising destruction of the universe) The second right hand is held in the abhaya pose (literally without fear) and so a gesture of protection, as an open palm is most likely to be interpreted.It depicts the god as a protector. The left leg is raised towards the right leg and reaches across it; the lower left hand is stretched across the body and points to the upraised left foot which represents release from the cycle of birth and death. The ring of fire and light, which circles the entire image, identifies the field of the dance with the entire universe.The lotus pedestal on which the image rests locates this universe in the heart or consciousness of each person.
