Nandi Magnetasian artmuseum store
The bull Nandi is the faithful mount of the Hindu deity Shiva. In southern India, a large sculpture of Nandi would usually be placed in front of the main sanctuary of a temple to Shiva, facing toward the sanctuary so that Nandi could gaze at the representation of Shiva placed there. This sculpture is part of the Asian Art Museum's collection and can be seen in the South Court of the museum. The magnet measures about 3"" tall and 3.5" wide. The magnet comes packaged in a packet that includes an image and information about the original artwork.
