Bindu Gude and Arun Mathai talking about Shiva as the Lord of Dance, India, Tamil Nadu, c. 950–1000, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, anonymous gift

Shiva: Indian Art + Dance

Yesterday, we took advantage of a quiet day in the galleries for another installment of our Facebook Live Indian art and dance series. LACMA curator Bindu Gude and budget manager Arun Mathai discussed Shiva in the museum's South and Southeast Asian art galleries, and Arun demonstrated excerpts from Bharatanatyam dances highlighting the story of the lord of dance.

Tune in at the end of May for the third installment of this series!
