In this image the god is seated in 'ardhparyanka' pose i.e. seated with his left leg bent and the right vertically on the seat. This four-armed deity holds unusual attributes in the backhands, a goad and a cobra. The cobra held in the right hand is entwined in the form of a noose. The main right hand is disposed in abhaya mudra and the left one holds a bowl of modaks. The trunk reaches out towards the left to pick a modaka off the bowl. The eyes are positioned slantingly on the sloping surface on his face resembling those of an elephant.
Ganesha is wearing a loincloth reaching below his knees, the folds of which are finely carved. He is wearing a scarf, the ends of which are neatly shaped flaring on either side of the hips. He wears an 'udarabandha', a stomach band of cobra. He wears a long garland of floral design hanging from the shoulders, long necklaces, bracelets, armlets and beaded anklets. He adorns an elaborate headdress called the karandamukuta. This crown is shaped like a conical basket tapering upwards. In this image, there is a halo depicted behind the head of the god.
Mouse, the god's vahana is discreetly placed at his feet. It may be inconspicuous but its importance cannot be diminished.
