Old Painted Wooden Nandi from India, hand carved and hand painted with an OM symbol on it’s forehead.

Nandis are Brahma bulls that are the vehicle for the Hindu God Shiva. They are hand painted and oftentimes repainted through the years during festival time in a temple.

Pink, red, blue, yellow, gold. Rustic condition. Quite charming.

Dimensions: 8-½" H x 7" L x 2" D

Happy International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day!

Between the late ’40s and the early ’70s, everything from golf balls and telephones to toy trains—and yes, ballpoint pens—were made in pastel “for her” colors and marketed toward women. Writer Lynn Peril, the author of Pink Think: Becoming a Woman in Many Uneasy Lessons, explains that mid-century manufacturers realized that if you take an ordinary object, turn it pink, and put the word “Lady” in front of the name, then you’ve created a product “for women” that can be sold for more money.
