Condition: Excellent

Private Collection


A very rare representation of Shiva, Lord of the Dance, in an unusual posture which captures the grace and sinuous strength of the deity. In the twist of the torso, the beautifully articulated limbs and serene face, the artist has registered power in a virtuoso display of skill. An overlay of rich ornamentation complements the simple rounded columns of the body. In the upraised hands are the drum, indicating the creation, and a flame, which stands for the destruction of worlds. The right hand touching the raised foot is a reminder of indestructibility of Being which, like the foot suspended in air, is all-encompassing and non-dependent. The left hand, usually seen in the “no fear” gesture, in this work drifts languidly toward the ground. The relation of the details to the whole is perfectly balanced. Carving is neither too broad nor is it overworked. In all a work of artistry, vitality, dignity, movement.
