world pictures Peninsular India: Chalukya 1: Badami

Shiva dances the Tandava, the dance signalling the destruction of the world. He has 18 hands, most with iconic objects including the dmaru, japamani, pushpa, trishula, and veena. Some of the hands are in positions familiar from Buddhism. The abhaya mudra indicates protection, for example, and the varada mudra indicates blessing. On the left, Nandi watches. At the lower right, Ganesh dances along.
