New Aeon Nataraj (1994)

Nataraja means “Lord of the Dance,” and refers to Shiva, envisioned here in a rather untraditional way, hence “New Aeon,” meaning the next phase of humankind’s collective spiritual growth. 

His left hand displays the mudra (gesture) that signifies simha, “lion,” and his right hand signifies padma, “lotus”; his abundant spiritual power (tapas)  coruscates about him like the crest of a volcano– yet he dances in the still center of balance.
