This is the first step of my Drawing of Shiva during Nataraja. He is dancing this particular dance, which destroys the world. His third eye is open. The drum in his right top hand gives him rythm. He holds fire in his left top hand. his bottom left hand follows the same direction as his foot. His right bottom hand shows peace, that people do not need to panic, to stay calm. there is a ring of fire where he dances. He steps on a dwarf that represents illusion and untruth.
I really enjoyed researching all the details that put this drawing together. I used a pencil at first but did the work again on it with a black pen.
