Shiva as Lord of Dance (Nataraja) As a symbol, Shiva Nataraja is a brilliant invention. It combines in a single image Shiva's roles as creator, preserver, and destroyer of the universe and conveys the Indian conception of the never-ending cycle of time. The symbols in the art imply that, through belief in Shiva, devotees can achieve salvation.
