DT Shiva Nataraja
Featuring one of the most popular Hindu deities, this piece depicts Shiva Nataraja. Shiva is regarded as the most powerful god in Hinduism. Nataraja means "King of Dancers". In this form, Shiva dances Anandatandava—the
Dance of Bliss—symbolizing the cosmic cycles of creation and
dissolution, as well as the daily rhythm and harmony of life, of birth
and death. The purpose of this dance, it is believed, is to release
humankind from ignorance and the snare of illusion of the "self."

About Dog Tags
Dog Tags measures 2” x 1.25” and hang on a 12"-14" adjustable silver or gold chain (as seen in picture). If you would like your chain shorter or longer please note this while placing your order and consider it done.
The Process - How it's Made
The process used on these tags will never be revealed completely. We take a designed image and place it onto a special & rare paper. It is then heated to a certain degree melting the image onto the tag. Sometimes we cover the entire tag with this process and other times like this we use special formulated paints to surround the image. The paint is put on in coats and filed, buffed and sometimes even carved to give it that weathered and/or textured look. We then use a special coating/sealant protecting the art from any damage that may occur while making the dog tag smooth to the touch. This also makes the tag easy to clean.
