SHIVA the King of dancers, depicts the flow of life through this dance posture. Creation and the heartbeat of life resounding through the hourglass drum. Preservation, patience, blessings, reflected in the upward poised front right hand. Destruction, the fire that burns to ashes, in the back left hand. The front left hand stretched out in elephant trunk pose signifying auspiciousness. Right foot holding down Illusion & Ignorance that makes us small. Left foot reaching upward gracefully suggesting detachment and letting go. Be mesmerized by this tiny 2.5" brass sculpture that is exquisitely handcrafted.
