Provenance: This sculpture was purchased from an antique dealer, named Nelda Lee who lives in Odessa, Texas. She purchased it from a Bank auction that had to sell all its assets in the 1980's.

Special Features:  This beautiful antique early 19th century Shiva Nataraja statue has a beautiful, rich bronze color typical of antiques.  As time passes the air reacts with the bronze giving a beautiful deep bronze hue that is only in antiques.  Stylistically the hair of Nataraja is spread out perfectly in large hook shapes.  The face is Shiva is magnificent!  He has beautiful almond shaped eyes that lead into a dignified nose and smiling lips.  The details of his head dress are all finely carved with care given to each line.  The hair is always cast separately and added to the statue.  It must have come off at some point because there is now a steel nut keeping the hair in place.  Nine of the tips of the flames of fiery prabha surrounding Shiva have been broken over the years.  

The Symbolism Behind the Snakes Worn by Shiva:  Nataraja wears a snake coiled around his upper arms and neck symbolizing the power he has over the most deadly of creatures. Snakes are also used to symbolize the Hindu dogma of reincarnation. Their natural process of molting or shedding their skin is symbolic of the human souls transmigration of bodies from one life to another.

Shipping:  Although the piece is under 150 pounds and could ship using UPS Ground we will be shipping it using a freight carrier as it will not have the trauma of a UPS Ground shipment.  Shipping is calculated from Oceanside, California after the purchase.  This piece is too heavy to ship via UPS ground and will be shipped using R&L Freight Carriers.  Time is needed to pack the piece in a crate.  Each piece is usually shipped within 3 working days.  If you place your order online shipping will show in the order as $0. Shipping will be calculated based on the weight of the sculpture and the distance from Oceanside, CA to determine the shipping price. Shipping will then be added to the total after the order is placed.  Please call 760-994-4455 or email us  for a shipping quote.
