This is a continuation of my earlier post : Thanjavur Palace Art Gallery
Here I am posting photographs of some of the brilliant dancing Nataraja bronzes on display here. Each of these Natarajas is distinct with its own unique features.(Other bronzes will follow in the next post).
Nata-raja means King of Dancers.It is a depiction of the Lord Siva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for the Lord Brahma to start the process of new creation. If you need more information on Nataraja please see this website: Nataraja - Wikipedia
