Lord Shiva has many names and forms.
One of the most famous is Shiva Nataraja, the dancer cosmique that give the rythme of the infinite process of destruction and creation of the universe.
Under his right foot he crushes a demon dwarf symbolizing ignorance.
His hair shows his immense power and is surrounded by a ring of fire (prabhamandala). The small drum (damaru) he holds in his upper right hand gives the pulse of the cosmos (maya) that comes to life thanks to the beneficial action of creative dance, the tandava.
The right hand offers less comfort to the faithful by making the abhaya mudra of blessing reassuring.
Shiva Nataraja is revered by performing artists (musicians, dancers, actors)
