There are 108 karanas or poses of Lord Shiva's Tandava dance.  Shiva holds in his hand agni or fire as well as a dhamru or drum.  Shiva's s other two hands are left free performing his dance posture.  He is clothed in a simple lion cloth, necklaces and assorted jewelry.  His head dress has a small crescent moon as well as a miniature version of the goddess Ganga.  He has a small bell wrapped around his right calf.   The overall detail for a smaller piece is very intricate as each finger and jewel is individually carved with care.  The artist made 65 of the 108 poses of the Tandava for Lotus\nSculpture.  To have them all lined up at once was truly something to\nbehold! 

The Story Behind the Wild Tandava:
  Kali was the patron goddess of Thillai Forest. Lord Shiva came to the forest to dance for two of his devotees, Patanjali and Vyaaghrapaada who worshipped the svayambhu-linga, now in the inner sanctum of the temple.  Kali challenged Shiva to a dancing contest on the condition that the loser had to leave the forest. The contest was judged by Lord Vishnu.  The dance contest went on for hours with every one of Shiva's dance postures being matched by Kali.  Shiva performed a posture with his left leg lifted over his head in the Ananda Thandavam exposing his genital area.  Kali, being a respectable woman, was unable to go into this compromising position. Thus, Kali admitted defeat and left the forest.
