In Hindu mythology, animals occupy an important place & are considered sacred due to their association with the deities. They are regarded as vahana or vehicles upon which these gods & goddesses travel.

Nandi, the bull is the vehicle of Shiva and thus worshipped too. As is known, Nandi was the chief of the ganas before Shiva gave this function to Ganesha. Nandi cut of the head of Airavat, the elephant of Indra so that Shiva could fix it on the body of Parvati's son.

In this picture, Nandi looks unlike its natural counterparts - the virile beasts that wonder across the pastures looking for mates or ready to gore to death a rival with its mighty horns. Shiva's bull is tame & meek as it stands here .A bull with a linga shaped hump, seemed a natural choice for Shiva's vehicle and insignia.

Against a green background, wherein the artist has given an impression of the ground and the horizon, stands majestically, a brownish grey bull. It wears a brilliant red over cloth covering its back and a part of its head .It also wears a necklace of tiny bells in its neck and one with floral patterns which reaches behind its dorsal hump. An elegant tiara is adjusted along its horns which are also capped in ornaments at the edge. Tassels hang down from both sides of the horns .The forelegs are decorated with strings of tinkle bells, the sight of Shiva's favourite.

Devotees at a Shiva shrine often touch the loins and flanks of Shiva's bull, seeking both its strength & restraint. They also try to view the Shiva linga through the horns of Nandi, thereby gaining the perfect perspective of the cosmic lord.

Great service. Keep on helping the people
Armando, Australia
I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.

I am a long-time customer of Exotic India for gifts for me and friends and family. We are never disappointed. Your jewelry craftspeople are very skilled artists. You must treasure them. And we always look forward to the beautifully decorated boxes you use to ship your jewelry.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.
Heramba, USA
Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
