Meaning the “Auspicious One” and known as The Great God (Mahadeva), Shiva is the most powerful of the Trimurti, the trinity of Hindu Gods along with Brahma and Vishnu. Known as the “Destroyer,” he creates, transforms and protects the universe and is both compassionate and formidable. Often portrayed as a yogi living an austere life at his home on Mount Kailash with his consort Parvati and their children Ganesha and Kartikeya, he is also depicted slaying a host of demons in his fierce state. He is also the patron god of yoga, meditation and the arts and worshipped in his aniconic form as a Lingham.

This Nandi is based on a South Indian cow whose humpback is emphasized here by two parallel lines covering it as if is part of a saddle or another ornament feature.
