Weekly Photo Challenge : Dance

 

Dance : In Hindu mythology, Nataraj (or Natraj or Nataraja), the dancing form of Shiva, performs the cosmic dance of destruction. ‘Nataraj’ literally translates to ‘King of Dance’ in Sanskrit, a combination of ‘nata’ meaning dance and ‘raja’ meaning king. Nataraj’s dance symbolises the eternal cycle of destruction and creation. Nataraj represents apocalypse and creation as he dances away a retrograde world, and renews it with power and enlightenment.
