In keeping with His divine status, Nandi is dressed in a piece of silken fabric and adorned with ample gold ornaments. The adornments start on the back, go over the small hump, and winds around the neck in multiple layers. Zoom in on the same to appreciate the precision and symmetry with which the same have been sculpted against the taurine musculature. It is a hallmark of not only the skill of the artisan but also the shraddha prevailing in his heart.
A chunky taselled gold ornament sits on Nandi’s brow. Note the shapely horns that jut out from His head, and the smooth flaps of His ears on either side. The eyes have been carved with considerable definition - the miniscule serrations on the brow and the rim of the deep-set eye. An expression of bhakti (unconditional love) and longing characterises the eyes of Nandi.
