Description
Icons depicting Shiva as the Lord of Dance (Nataraja) seem to have originated in the North in Gupta times, and developed in the South under the post-Gupta Vishnukundin dynasty early in the seventh century. One of the first southern sculptures is a colossal dancing figure carved upon the cliff face above the facade of a cave- temple at Mogallarajapuram on the Krishna river. The Pallavas took up the theme and developed it throughout the succeeding two centuries until, in the tenth century, the Cholas perfected in bronze the form which is the precursor to the present image. To place this icon-type in its context, it is just one of several images, such as the Dakshinamurtis, which depict Shiva-Mahaguru in one of his teaching roles; in this case, as a teacher of the classical dance which originated as a magnificent form of worship in temples.
