Music is the ethos of ancient Indian culture. The ancient sages were well aware of the science of music. Numerous songs had been composed in the early period in the praise of deities. Several deities have been shown in early Indian art as playing different musical instruments, e.g., Sarasvati, the goddess of learning has been shown with the Vina, while sage Narada with Vina Vallake.

Ganesha's association with music is made evident by different sources. He has been shown in Indian art with several musical instruments. It is said that Ganesha knows perfectly well the basis of the seven notes of the musical scale. He enjoys the sound of the drum and has perfect knowledge to recognize the true nature of the music. The presence of musical instruments in the hands of Ganapati in some of his forms clearly shows his predilection for music. In a Kangra painting of 18th century Ganesha has been shown, along with Nataraja, playing different musical instruments, e.g., Cymbals, Vina and damaru. The Shaivite monuments of South India also depict Ganesa as a musician. However, playing Tabla is a rare representation of Ganesa.

In the present manifestation, the pot-bellied Ganesa has been shown seated elegantly on a pedestal, supported by lotus petals. The deity with his two hands plays Tabla.

He has two eyes, drooping ears, two tusks and Shaivite marks (tilak) on his forehead. He is wearing a crown, sacred-thread, necklace, sash, armlets, bracelets, anklets and so on. His pants are incised with plain straps, in vertical order. The upper portion of the body is bare.

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.
