The bull Nandi is Shiva's primary vehicle of Lord Shiva. Nandi is considered to be one of Shiva's chief attendants and occasionally is depicted in sculpture as a bull-faced dwarf figure.
Nandi is the name for the bull which serves as the mount of the god Shiva and as the gatekeeper of Shiva and Parvati.
