Brighten your day with this charming handmade Batik painting featuring Lord Nataraja (Lord of Dance). 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.
Lord Nataraja is shown dancing in an aureole of flames, lifting his left leg (or in rare cases, the right leg) and balancing over a demon or dwarf who symbolizes ignorance. It is a well known sculptural symbol in India and popularly used as a symbol of Indian culture.
Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the West as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries. In India Batik became popular in Shantiniketan, near Calcutta, and has now gone to many parts of India and the world. Batik paintings portray a huge array of themes which include religious themes as well as abstract patterns.
