The statue is created using Madhuchishtavidhana (Lost-Wax method). Since the wax model of the statue is destroyed within the making process, every statue made with this method is unique. No copy of such pieces can be made ever.

The green patina on the statue is not natural. It was applied to the piece for aesthetic reasons. You may easily remove it with a brass cleaning agent commercially available. The cleaned statue will however get natural green patina over time due to oxidation.
Description
Shiva, as Nataraja, performs the energetic tandava dance which represents the dynamism in the cosmos. Throughout this dance Shiva remains the subduer of Apasmara - personification of ignorance and darkness. Besides the famous Nataraja pose there are other poses of Shiva as well which are a part of his dance. This statue is one of them. Shiva sports the usual Damaru (drum) and Kaalagni (flame cup) in his two upper hands. One of his lower hand is raised in Abhaya Mudra (assurance) and the other drops loosely. If you look closely at this hand it will resemble the profile of an elephant from forehead to trunk tip. This is known as Gaja Hasta Mudra. He dances on Apasmara. Shiva's legs bent at knees form a square and this pose is therefore known as Chatura Tandava Murti.
