Antique Sacred Cow
Nandi is the protector of Shiva, a powerful Hindu god. To have a Nandi in your house is said to give protection and happiness. Our wooden Nandi's are original pieces and they come in many different sizes, shapes and colours.
The small wooden Nandi's we offer come from houses and village shrines. They are worshipped frequently with holy water, oil, milk and ritual powder. Over time this gives the Nandi a nice patina.
Many children used them also as toys, they attach wheels under the cow and run around all over the street. The result is that many cows are missing ears and tails. But these imperfections gives an extra charm to the Nandi's.
*Due to the handmade nature of this product, each one will have many variations that only add to the character of this piece. That's the beauty of handmade - your piece is truly one of a kind!
