Shiva is believed to be the lord of destruction in the Hindu
religious thought. But this deity is always depicted in a
calm meditative posture unless engaged in a Tandava dance.
This meditative stance and dispassionate attitude is considered
to be essential to monitor the workings of the universe. Eyes
half closed and a serene expression on His divine face, Shiva
continues to destroy all evil influences and keep a fatherly
gaze upon us.
Intricately carved to a superb polish, this piece of sculpture
instantly appeals the discerning eye.
