This is the three-eyed calf being worshipped as a deity in India. The baby cow was born with the additional organ in the middle of his head, much like the Hindu god Shiva. Visitors have flocked the village of Kolathur in Tamil Nadu, southern India, to see the special calf. One of the key identifying features of Shiva is the third eye on his forehead, which can emit flames. When Shiva loses his temper, he opens his third eye to burn things to ashes.

COMME des GARÇONS A/W 2014: “MONSTER”
"Not the typical monster you find in sci-fi and video games. The monsters I have made have a much deeper meaning: the craziness of humanity, the fear we all have, the feeling of going beyond common sense, the absence of ordinariness, expressed by something big, by something that could be ugly or beautiful. In other words, I wanted to question the established standards of beauty."
Davide Mercatali, Nomade for Formart, 1975
