Indian Vintage Carved Wooden Bull Sculpture Depicting Guardian Deity Nandi
An Indian vintage Nandi bull sculpture from the mid 20th century, with carved motifs and dark patina. Created in India during the mid 20th century, this carved wooden sculpture features Nandi, son of the sage Shilada. Depicted as a bull, Nandi is the guardian deity of Kailash, the home of Shiva in the Hindu religion. Reclining on a conforming base, the bull contrasts black tones with gilded accents.
The golden heart shaped feature on the head and the bull's timid stance gives this sculpture a comforting, yet strong aura in any room. This great conversation starter piece showcased in our antiques collection would make an eye-catching prominent piece in any work or home office or pair it with one of our beautiful vintage coffee tables!
