Shiva’s Nataraja statue, a sacred symbol, occupies a prominent position within the CERN, which is one of the premier research institutes in the world.
On June 18, 2004, a 2m tall statue of the dancing Shiva was unveiled at CERN, the European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva, Switzerland. The statue, symbolizing Shiva's cosmic dance of creation and destruction, was given to CERN by the Indian Government to celebrate the research center's long association with India. Physicist Fritjof Capra further explained in The Tao of Physics: “The Dance of Shiva symbolizes the basis of all existence.”
In this day and age, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art, and modern physics.” According to quantum field theory, the dance of creation and destruction is the basis of the very existence of matter. Modern physics has thus revealed that every subatomic particle not only performs an energy dance but also is an energy dance; a pulsating process of creation and destruction. For the modern physicists then, Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter, the basis of all existence and of all natural phenomena.”
