Description

Ganesha, the versatile god, reflects in his many contexts a broad range of Indian cultural characteristics. Part of his popularity has to do with the way he looks. He has an elephant head and a human body. Usually his belly is depicted as short and squat with an enormous middle.

This is not the common iconic image of Ganesha with his attributes. This is an image of Bala Ganesha. Instead of the karanda mukut, he wears a turban replete with an aigrette and a plume. The ears resemble winnowing trays signifying that he throws away the dust of vice and virtue. His big eyes are placed on either side of his trunk in a slanting manner. On his forehead is the tilak of Shiva and on his trunk is the symbol of aum. Bala Ganesha is in the posture of crawling. Position of the limbs lends movement to the picture. He is dressed in a red and green short loincloth, and is wearing a necklace, bracelets in the wrists, armlets, and anklets. One of his tusks is broken and according to some texts it was broken in a tussle with Shiva and others say that Ganesha broke it to use it as a stylus while writing the Mahabharata.

He is relishing a modaka from a bowl full of these sweets lying in the foreground.
