Nandi - It is the name of the ox that Lord Shiva used as his mount. He is also believed to be the gate keeper for Lord Shiva and his wife Goddess Parvati. In India, most of the temples that are dedicated to Lord Shiva will have a seated Nandi in front of the deity that is facing the temple. There are temples that are solely dedicated to Nandi as well. Nandi is considered to be the sign of strength and fertility hence a lot of people bought this brass sculpture from us and have placed them in the work shipping place at home and offices.
