A very interesting Cow Japanese label: Nandi - the bull which serves as the mount of the god Shiva


Nandi 

Nandi - Is the name for the bull which serves as the mount of the god Shiva and as the gate keeper of Shiva and Parvati. In Hindu mythology, he is the chief guru of eighteen masters (18 siddhas) including Patanjali and Thirumular. Temples venerating Shiva display stone images of a seated Nandi, generally facing the main shrine. There are also a number of temples dedicated solely to Nandi. (from Wikipedia)
