Shiva, in his manifestation as Lord of the Cosmic Dance, is one of the most famous of all Hindu icons. Siva symbolizes the cyclic cosmic progress of creation and destruction. Shiva is shown dancing the dance of creation, stomping on a dwarf representing ignorance, as an aureole of fire surrounds him. In this particular sculpture, artistic license has been taken and Shiva has been given a few more pairs of arms to help him re-create the universe.
