Nandi: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Shiny

This post is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Shiny

This photo shows a statue of Nandi, the vehicle of Shiva. This Nandi has been gazing at an idol of his master for more than a thousand years through the entrance of a temple in Pattadakal, India. Carved from a single piece of stone, this Nandi gleams because it has been caressed by humans for centuries.
