Natraj, the Dancing Shiva

This image is steeped in symbolism. The ring of fire represents the continual motion of the universe through creation, preservation and destruction. He is seen dancing on the back of a demon which represents ignorance and ego, only after destroying these aspects can one reach enlightenment. In one hand he holds the rattle drum which signifies creative activity, while in another he holds fire, the symbol of destruction. The cobra around his neck symbolizes cosmic energy while the third eye in the center of the forehead is the seat of wisdom. It is said that Shiva opens his third eye to destroy evil. This cosmic dance represents Shiva as the moving force of the universe.
