Perhaps, of all Hindu Gods, he is the only one sitting facing south. The great seer Ramana Maharshi,has interpreted the name as "Dakshina-amurty", meaning one who is capable but without form.
The Lord is sitting on a royal chair and the dwarf beneath his feet represents ignorance thereby the image signifies victory over ignorance.
