DELHI, INDIA, September 9, 2023 (YouTube): The G20 Summit in New Delhi is witness to the awe-inspiring presence of a colossal 28-foot tall Nataraja statue, believed to be the tallest of its kind in the world. The installation of this magnificent statue captures the essence of Lord Shiva’s cosmic power of creation and destruction. Crafted in Tamil Nadu using the ancient lost-wax technique of metal casting that dates back to the illustrious era of the Chola dynasty, the Nataraja’ statue represents a tribute to the famed Chola bronzes. This meticulous method involves casting molten metal, such as bronze, gold, or silver, into a mold created from wax or resin-like materials. The result is a stunningly detailed sculpture that captures the essence of Lord Shiva’s dance of creation and the eternal cycle of life.
