20th Century Antique Bronze Hindu Goddess Statue of the Deity Shiva, Seated
A casting of Shiva who is often shown to be in deep meditation or to be dancing the eternal dance of creation and destruction. When shown dancing, he is referred to as ‘Nataraja’- the ‘lord of the dance’ and is usually dancing on top of a small demon figure- called ‘Apasmara’. In Hindu mythology, Apasmara represents ignorance- the enemy of enlightenment.
The bronze piece is in very good condition - complete with Shivas' apasmara on the base. The piece can be used as a stand alone statue or possibly as a book end to prop up books.
Dimensions: W5", D2.6", H7.25. Very good condition.
