Nataraja Sculpture:

This image shows an image of Nataraja in the hoysala temple, Halebid, Karnataka. The larger sculptures of the Hoysala temple are carved in a particular style. The main figure is surrounded by an ornamental canopy of creepers and flowers. The figures of the deities are decorated with heavy jewellery. Nataraja is seen here dancing upon the fallen figure of Apasmara, the demon of ignorance. Each hand of Siva depicts a dance mudra. One can compare this sculpture with other Nataraja figures from different places and historical periods for similarity in symbols associated with the Nataraja.
