Nandi is one of the most revered animals in the entire Hindu fraternity because of it being the auspicious mount of Lord Shiva. This sacred bull calf can be commonly found in all Hindu temples as sitting in eternal waiting, qualifying the essence of receptivity. It is said that if you convey your wishes secretly in Nandi’s ears, they have a chance to be fulfilled, as Nandi has the quality and willingness to just listen in complete alertness without any expectations and anticipations; it acts a divine guardian and a bestower of happiness, joy and satisfaction.
This sculpture here sits in vigilance and extreme alertness, carved outstandingly in painstaking time, adorned in mesmerized jewels all over- anklets on feet, necklace, multilayered circular headgear that reaches its forehead and a chain of bells hung on its neck. This Nandi is garbed in a lavishly embroidered cloth of floral and geometric patterns enhancing its divinity with the tail scribbled in realistic designs.
