|Description:||Siva is shown, dancing the Tandava, the cosmic dance, on the dwarf Mulayaka. His wife Parvati watches him dance while Nandin and various deities, nagas and dwarfs form a guard of honour. The movement is intense and supple|
that for Parvati is full of feminine grace. The admirable composition adds to the dynamism of the group and assures its balance.
