Shiva & Nandi

Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction, creation, and regeneration, has long been linked to an association with Nandi, his loyal bull. Their relationship has transcended time and is symbolically represented in many images.

From the stories of Shiva, it is said that Nandi was a gift given to Shiva by his father, the god Brahma. Nandi was a white bull, blessed with strength and loyalty, and Shiva respected him above all else. Nandi became a loyal companion and adviser to Shiva.

The tales of Shiva and Nandi continue to be told through statues, images, and sculptures. One representation of the duo is in a bas-relief stone sculpture that is said to have been inspired by a story where Shiva declared to Nandi that he would remain in the form of a bull as long as his master danced in the cosmic dance of creation and destruction.

The two were also said to be inseparable, and wherever Shiva made his presence, Nandi would accompany him. In times of sorrow and struggle, Shiva was said to ride upon Nandi, and Nandi provided comfort and solace to Shiva when he needed it the most.

Nandi and Shiva remain two of the most symbolic representations of loyalty, courage, and friendship. Their bond is still celebrated and remembered in religious and cultural functions.
