  • Shiva in a dance competition with Kali!
  • Wonderful story behind the pose
  • Lost wax method, one of a kind statue
  • Same day shipping from California!
Thiruvalangadu, north of Madras, is associated with the dance contest between Shiva and his consort in the form of Kali.  According to legend, Shiva danced vigorously, and to subdue Kali, threw up his leg in the rhythm of the dance.  Being a lady, Kali could not repeat this feat and stood dismayed.  This dance and the subjugation of Kali, are described in the hymns of the female saint-poet Karaikkal Ammai.

It is an amazing technical act that the metal artist could portray Shiva dancing with one leg thrown up and barely balancing on the tow of the other and still preserve the absolute beauty of the dance proportionally and with restraint.  It should be considered a marvel.
From; "The Great Tradition of Indian Bronze Masterpieces"

Shiva holds a trident, 2 cobras, a dhamru or drum and a vessel with Agni or fire blazing in it.  He wears a beautiful head dress with a 5 hooded serpent over head.  Shiva dances on the body of a demon dwarf named ApasmaraApasmara represents ignorance and mindlessness.  Apasmara tries to hinder all people from freeing themselves from the circle of reincarnation.  The fiery ring surrounding Shiva, the prahabhamandala, represents the universe with all of its illusion, suffering and pain. 

Lost Wax Method: This sculpture is a one of a kind, lost wax method bronze statue hand made by the artists of Bangladesh. The statue pictured is the only sculpture Lotus Sculpture has like this in our store. When you order this piece you will receive this exact piece. It is truly one of a kind as there is only one made exactly like this! Each bronze is hand made by a group of bronze artists whose families have been crafting bronze sculptures for centuries with the art being passed on by each generation. The hand crafted bronzes statues have an incredible amount of detail which many other mass produced, brass Hindu statues lack.
