„Resting Nandi by the sea“

from the gallery of Marjolein Katsma

On the beach of Mamallapuram, a natural rock has been turned into a shrine for the Lord Shiva.

The bull Nandi usually serves as a guard for Shiva, but here he seems to have fallen asleep - or is at least resting. curiously, he seems to have one hand and one hoof.

The sea and maybe rain have eroded the relief somewhat, but the image is still clearly recognizable.
