Life is a Dance of Shakti and Shiva A beautiful picture of Shiva and Parvati in dance, curiously with the background of Shiva again , as Natraja, The King of dance. And this catches our interest, What is the painting trying to convey? To me it is a very beautiful concept of pictorially conveying the greatness of Shakti. I bring your attention to the word Maya. https://www.facebook.com/shailgulhatishivapage/photos/a.604173349629181.1073741828.602792436433939/701028493276999/
Shiva as Lord of Dance (Nataraja) As a symbol, Shiva Nataraja is a brilliant invention. It combines in a single image Shiva's roles as creator, preserver, and destroyer of the universe and conveys the Indian conception of the never-ending cycle of time. The symbols in the art imply that, through belief in Shiva, devotees can achieve salvation.
Why Lord Shiva Is the Most Fascinating Hindu Deity
Shiva is both destroyer or purifier and re-creator. The snakes around his neck symbolize power over evil and fertility. He wears a female earring on his left and and a males on his right which symbolizes sexual power and union.
