Black stone Nandi statue
Material: Black Stone is used for making this particular piece of art.
Nandi is Shiva’s closest helper because he is the spirit of receptivity. Before you go into a temple, you must have the place of Nandi – to completely sit. Nandi (also Nandin) is the divine bull calf, gatekeeper, and vehicle (vahana) of the Hindu god Shiva. Statues of Nandi are a familiar sight at Hindu temples devoted to his master, and he is partially liable for the Hindu worship for living bulls even today, uniquely in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
The respect shown to the bull in modern India is somewhat because of his connection with Shiva. In Hindu towns such as Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh state, certain bulls are given the freedom to wander the streets. They are supposed to belong to the god, and they are marked on the flank with the trident symbol of Shiva.
Nandi is the son of Kasyapa and Surabhi, according to the Vayu Purana. His function as Shiva’s protector is depicted in the Saura Purana Nandi as ‘decorated with all ornaments, gleaming like a thousand stars, clutching a trident in his hand, three-eyed, adorned with a sliver of the moon, a thunderbolt in his palm, four-armed, like a second Sankara [Shiva]’.
Black stone Nandi statue is Shiva’s carrier as well as the leader of the god’s ganas, or friends, and as a result, he frequently bears a golden team of office. Shiva’s additional tasks include protecting all quadrupeds and providing music while performing the tandava, or cosmic dance of creation.
Most Hindu temples devoted to Shiva, notably Dravida (Southern) temples, have a sculpture of Nandi Statue Stone as a bull seated on a pedestal in front of them. He is enshrined in a Nandi mandapa, a special columned structure where he gazes in adoration at Shiva’s linga within the main temple. Worshippers frequently adorn the bull with bells, clappers, and floral decorations.
Shiva can take the form of a bull, known as Nandi-Kesvara, in Javanese temples, and he commonly stands guard with a trident in one hand and a lotus flower in the other. Nandi is frequently depicted in Hindu art as being ridden by Shiva and having pure white skin. On the 1st and 2nd, he also appears with Shiva.
