Shiva dances upon the back of a dwarf figure crouching on his stomach.  This pose is not as typical as some of his other dancing postures.  He dances on one leg extended straight down with the other straight up almost making a straight line.  His torso and head are thrown back.  He only has two hands, one holding a drum at his knee and the other a khatvanga, a club made of a bone with a skull at the top.  He wears jewelry including a belt with pendent loops and tassels, necklaces including a heavy long necklace, armlets and bracelets and an elaborate crown organized with a number of peaks. On his forehead we find the third eye, another identifier of the god Shiva. A dense circular background consisting of three inner rows of round elements, the middle one may be composed of skulls, and an outer row of flame-like elements surrounds the whole figure, animating the image into a whirl of the dance.  The whole sits on a circular base, plain with a flanged bottom section decorated with a lotus petal motif.  <br />
