In Hinduism, three of the most important figures are Brahmā the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Śhiva the destroyer. In destroying the old to make way for the new, Śhiva takes on the form of Nataraja (here in LEGO by Machetero 9), the cosmic dancer. This image is common in Hindu art and is uses in sculpture or relief form in many temples.
