The enthralling Nataraja, the King of Dance, has four arms. The first holds the fine-looking damru representing the rhythmic sound to which Nataraja dances. The second hand is raised in blessing, the Abhaya mudra (the "fear not" gesture). The third carries sacred Agni (fire). The right leg, representing elegance, rests upon the head of Apasmara Purusha, a soul representing inertia. The uplifted left foot, grants eternal bliss to those who approach him. The fourth hand across the chest lies in an elephant- trunk pose, fingers pointed down toward the uplifted foot.
The turbulent cobra around Nataraja's waist is kundalini shakti, the cosmic power resident within all. The locks of his hair stand out in many strands. His locks are decked and scattered with the sacred river Ganges. Nataraja portrays a snake coiled around his upper arms and neck symbolizing the power he has over the most deadly of creatures. All the elements of visual aesthetics are absorbed in this unique relic. You must have this Nataraja in your dwelling for bliss, happiness, pleasure, and positivity.
