This revered reclining bull is formed of high crystalline quartz which is rose-red to gentle-pink in color. It is usually cloudy or streaked as shown in this statue, with inclusions of small rutile needles. It carries an energy of compassion and peace, tenderness, healing and comfort; used majorly in ornaments, but this superfine sculpture is hand carved by tumbling and cutting a single piece with accurate measures and shapes. This heart stone is also used as a love token since ages and is still an important talisman of relationships.
Nandi is the mount of Lord Shiva and it is opined that if you say your wishes in Nandi’s ears, they will be fulfilled. This high quality sculpture can be placed best either facing the Shivalinga in a sanctum or separately facing the main shrine or the main gate.
