Many of the seeders from India have the following iconography (see Seeders 1-5 shown below): On two sides an ox is shown — the animal who is pulling the plough; on the third side Ganesh is shown who represents a good crop; and on the fourth side, a couple is depicted using a seeder — man and wife.

But there are numerous other designs too: some seeders have flower motifs or are plain with only a swastica, others show parrots and flowers or do not have any design, but sometimes a name is written on one side or a simple geometric design.
