Hail to thee of auspicious form, whose head is
crowned with a garland of stars, so that thou art like
the peak of Mount Meru! I adore thy trunk flung up
straight in the joy of the dance, so as to sweep the
clouds, like a column supporting the edifice of the
three worlds. Destroyer of obstacles, I worship thy
snake-adorned body swelling out into a broad
pitcher-like belly, the treasure house of all success.

This prayer by the Kasmiri poet Somadeva (ca 11th century), celebrates Ganesha in his dancing form. Indeed very much like his father, and his companions (ganas), Ganesha loves to dance. Images of dancing Ganesha remain a testimony to the skill of the Indian sculptor, who manages to convey an extraordinary sense of buoyancy and lithe movement inspite of Ganesha's ample, bulky form.

Here Ganesha dances with his right leg raised in joyous abandon, and placed on a lotus. His left heel is slightly lifted, the same foot being balanced solely on the toes. His legs are short and chubby. The beautifully delineated trunk is incised and holds his a modaka (laddoo) in it. This being Ganesha's favorite food. His four dynamic arms hold an elephant goad; his severed tooth; a noose; and a modak again. Ganesha wears a detailed crown which hoods his forehead completely, and is capped with a multi-tiered pyramidal structure. His two large ears fan out in either direction.

Ganesha's mount, the mouse can be seen paying obeisance to him at the lower left.

This sculpture was created in Aligarh, a small town in the central Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
