Nataraja, Kailasanath:

This image shows the Nataraja sculpture in the Kailasanath temple. The walls of the Kailasanatha temple are profusely carved with panels of sculptures depicting episodes from stories of myths and legends. The Kailasanatha temple is dedicated to Siva, and has many sculptures of Siva and his attendants. Siva is said to have created the universe through his cosmic dance. Siva also challenged Parvati, his wife to a dance competition. In this sculpture, Siva is dancing along with Nandi, his vahana and other attendants. He has lifted one leg high above his shoulder in an acrobatic pose, this was the pose which Parvati, did not want to attempt as it was not a graceful posture for a woman.
