Nataraja at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland

The statue of Nataraja, the dancing form of Lord Shiva was unveiled at CERN, the European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva, Switzerland.

For the modern physicists, Shiva’s cosmic dance unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics.

Scientists Peter Higgs and Francois Englert at CERN which discovered the “God particle” were awarded the Nobel Physics Prize in 2013.
