The artifact symbolize Natraj - Natraj is said to be the god of artistic skill.

Natraj is one of the names of the Hindu god, Shiva, the most revered god in this ancient religion. The image of Natraj is also known as "dancing Shiva". The dancing image captured in popular statues is meant to symbolize life's ebb and flow. It also reminds us of the balance between form and void, as well as the time before the divine created form from the void. The statues of Natraj are framed by a circle representing cosmic energy. If you look closely at a status of this Hindu god, you will see that Natraj stands upon a demon, which symbolizes triumph over spiritual ignorance.
