(read my "ps" too). Statue depicts Shiva dancing as Nataraja (LordofDance). Rhythm of dance=metaphor re balance in the universe which Shiva controls."Tandava"is cosmic dance of death, performs at the end of an age, to destroy the universe. ps; be that as it may, it's a dance in form & time into the formless & timeless which is quite normal; slight over-dramatization, almost sounds a touch sinister but i assure you Lord Shiva is lovely&has a great sense of humor, like me.

Shiva's Cosmic Dance at CERN On June 18, 2004, an unusual new landmark was unveiled at CERN, the European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva — a 2m tall statue of the Indian deity Shiva Nataraja, the Lord of Dance. The statue, symbolizing Shiva's cosmic dance of creation and destruction, was given to CERN by the Indian government to celebrate the research center's long association with India. In choosing the image of Shiva Nataraja, the Indian government acknowledged the profound significance of the metaphor of Shiva's dance for the cosmic dance of subatomic particles, which is observed and analyzed by CERN's physicists. The parallel between Shiva's dance and the dance of subatomic particles was first discussed by Fritjof Capra in an article titled "The Dance of Shiva: The Hindu View of Matter in the Light of Modern Physics," published in Main Currents in Modern Thought in 1972. Shiva's cosmic dance then became a central metaphor in Capra's international bestseller The Tao of Physics, first published in 1975 and still in print in over 40 editions around the world. A special plaque next to the Shiva statue at CERN explains the significance of the metaphor of Shiva's cosmic dance with several quotations from The Tao of Physics. Here is the text of the plaque: "Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, seeing beyond the unsurpassed rhythm, beauty, power and grace of the Nataraja, once wrote of it "It is the clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of." More recently, Fritjof Capra explained that "Modern physics has shown that the rhythm of creation and destruction is not only manifest in the turn of the seasons and in the birth and death of all living creatures, but is also the very essence of inorganic matter," and that "For the modern physicists, then, Shiva's dance is the dance of subatomic matter." It is indeed as Capra concluded: "Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Shivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our time, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics."

Lord Shiva, who is referred to as Nataraj (Nata-dancer, raj -king) is the Hindu god of dance.
Nataraja - means Kings of Dancers - the Divine Creator and its Creation. | Dancing is surely the most basic and relevant of all forms of expression. Poetry and music exist in time. Painting and architecture are a part of space. But only the dance lives at once in both space and time. In it the creator and the thing created, the artist and the expression, are one. There could be no better metaphor for an understanding of the mechanics of the cosmos. ― Lyall Watson
Nataraja, Lord Shiva as the Cosmic Dancer representing the rhythmic movement of the entire cosmos, it is seen as the image of his rhythmic play which is the source of all movement within the universe. This is represented by the circular or elliptical frame surrounding the Lord, the purpose of his dance is to release the souls of all men from the snare of illusion and the place of the dance, Chidambaram, which is portrayed as the center of the universe, is actually within the heart.

Fritzof Capra in his article "The Dance of Shiva: The Hindu View of Matter in the Light of Modern Physics" & later in the The Tao of Physics relates Nataraj's dance with modern physics. He says that "every subatomic particle not only performs an energy dance but also a pulsating process of creation & destruction without end. As in Hindu mythology, it's a continual dance of creation & destruction involving the whole cosmos, the basis of all existence & all natural phenomena."
