In SCULPTURES

Shiva Nataraja

is a depiction of the god Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for the god Brahma to start the process of creation. I photographed this one in a shop in Ubud, BALI….which I thought was quite delicate. I liked the way He is taming, holding and at the same time dancing on a cobra….

As you know the cobra is a revered creature in India…and considered more of a sacred friend than a foe. In fact, Shiva is often depicted with a cobra around His neck. So it is no accident that at Babaji’s ashram there are some of these “necklaces” around…. like this one Ms. Sondra is wearing, providing quite a fashion statement.
