This livey and vivid impression is a mixed one showing the god Shiva in the Lord of the Dance aspect (Nataraja नटराज). "This cosmic dance of Shiva is called 'Anandatandava,' meaning the Dance of Bliss, and symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of birth and death."
