Sacred Bull of Shiva, Nandi
Ca. 18th century
5 in :: 12.7 cm
Nandi which means ‘giving delight’ is the devoted mount of Shiva. This appealing sculpture is distinguished by ornamental elements on its body: a bell attached to pearl-like beads around its neck; the carpet serving as a saddlecloth for its divine master; and the pointed ears, horns and hump draped in ceremonial finery.
