Carved Teakwood Ash Box with Nandi, Tamil Naidu

Carved Teakwood Ash Box with Nandi, Tamil Naidu


This teakwood ash box from South India, Tamil Naidu was used to store vibhuti or sacred ash. The swivel lid features Nandi, the bull vahana or vehicle for Hindu God Shiva. The application of ash is a religious ritual generally associated with the followers of Shiva. The ash box has two separate compartments which can be used to store trinkets. The wheels and the beaded columns on either side of the bull give the ash box an appearance of a chariot.
