About the Artwork +

Eminent artist Pannalal Soni portrays standardized structure of dancing Lord Shiva introduced as "oxidised Natraj", which is by design oxidised or vintaged in a brass sculpture artwork. Oxidation or patination give brass art pieces an aged and weathered image, used to create a sense of antiquity and timelessness in the artistry. As well the process enhance the details and features of the sculpture, bringing out the oulines, folds, and complexities of the Natraj's dancing pose and attire. Additionally, the use of oxidation is iconic as it represents the idea of time and change, which is often associated with Lord Shiva in Hindu mythology, as he is considered the Lord of Destruction and Transformation.
