Ganesha, the elephant headed god, is one of the most important divinities of the Hindu pantheon. He is a very popular god, as he is invoked for success at the beginning of every undertaking - the god being the success grantor. Ganesha has everything that is fascinating to anyone who is interested in religion or India or both, charm, mystery, popularity, moral ambivalence, political importance, the works.

Ganesha is often associated with Lakshmi and/or Saraswati. Seated hare on Saraswati's vahana the swan, he holds Sri's padma, justifying the above association. According to legend, Shiva, on seeing a figure in Parvati's doorway, decapitated Ganesha, ignorant of the fact that he was Parvati's son. Repentant, once he realized his mistake, Shiva swore to replace Ganesha 's head with the first head he saw, which happened to be that of an elephant. Shiva made him the leader of the ganas. He also made Ganesha the guardian of doorways as a tribute to his guarding his mother.

Here he holds a battle axe in one hand and a lotus in the upper two. He holds a bowl of modakas in one normal hand and makes a gesture of fearlessness with the other. He wears a crown with an inverted lotus design and a halo of a lotus too. In the foreground, on a lotus leaf in the water can be seen the mouse, Ganesha's vehicle. The mouse signifies the paradox of the relative size of the mouse to the elephant.
