Hindu Destruction God
Dancing Hindu God of Universal Destruction
Known cheerfully as The Destroyer, he is Lord of the Cosmic Dance.
And how Shiva dances. One of the Trimurti Top Gods, he whirls and propels enemies to defeat and his dancing creates or destroys the Universe. Until you have seen him in action you really don’t know what break-dancing is.
He appears to have four arms and five heads, but this could be the blurring effect of his high-speed gyrations.
In his destroying mode he is known as Mahakala. See also Harihara.
