Thota Vaikuntam
Untitled (Shiva)


The iconography of Lord Shiva as Nataraja, the Lord of Dance, has inspired artists through the ages. In this energetic depiction, Vaikuntam retains Nataraja's classical iconography and combines it with the colours and clothing of south Indian dance traditions. Vaikuntam captures the energy of the dance through Nataraja's flowing locks and the halo-like fiery aspect created around the central figure.
