Nataraja (Sanskrit: नटराज, translit. Naṭarāja, Kannada: ನಟರಾಜ, translit. Naṭarāja,Tamil: நடராஜர், translit. Naṭarāja,Telugu: నటరాజు, translit. Naṭarāju, meaning "the lord of dance") is a depiction of the Tamil mythology Shaiva Siddhanta as the cosmic ecstatic dancer. His dance is called Tandavam or Nadanta, depending on the context of the dance.The pose and artwork is described in many Hindu texts such as the Anshumadbhed agama and Uttarakamika agama, the dance relief or idol featured in all major Tamil temples of Shaivism.
The classical form of the depiction appears in stone reliefs, as at the Ellora Caves and the Badami Caves, by around the 6th-century. Around the 10th century, it emerged in Tamil Nadu in its mature and best-known expression in Chola bronzes, of various heights typically less than four feet,some over. The Nataraja reliefs have been identified in historic artwork from many parts of South Asia, in southeast Asia such as in Bali, Cambodia, and in central Asia.
