More About this Figure - adapted from the MetMuseum.org website: 

The Shiva Nataraja is a brilliant invention. It combines in a single image Shiva's roles as creator, preserver, and destroyer of the universe and conveys the Indian conception of the never-ending cycle of time.
The god holds in his upper right hand the damaru (hand drum that made the first sounds of creation).
His upper left hand holds agni (the fire that will destroy the universe).
With his lower right hand, he makes abhayamudra (the gesture that allays fear).
The dwarflike figure being trampled by his right foot represents apasmara purusha (illusion, which leads mankind astray).
Shiva's front left hand, pointing to his raised left foot, signifies refuge for the troubled soul.
The symbols imply that, through belief in Shiva, his devotees can achieve salvation.

Not a toy, not meant for children.
