This wooden icon of the young Lord Ganesha represents him as the pupil drummer who is yet in the process of acquiring proficiency in the art of drum-playing. It seems to be his first public appearance and is hence allowed to join the band with one drum instead of the usual two. This amounts to both, an ordeal requiring him to produce with one drum all that usually the two of them do and as much a concession as he has to manage just one of them. The conscious pupil has wide writ on his face grave tension, which inflates the upper part of his trunk and makes his eyes further sink in their sockets. The disciplined chap is too conscious in putting on his forehead a prominent 'tripunda' mark. In confusion he seems to have forgotten his usual 'modaka'.

It has been a practice since long that master artists, both vocalists and instrumentalists, when invited for a prestigious performance, took with them any of their promising disciples and allowed him to perform with his learner's instrument and skill. The sculptor of this wooden piece, well acquainted with this practice, has included this pupil form of the instrumentalist Ganesha for giving a realistic touch to his mythological rendering, which is the very gist of folk art-view. The band of musician Ganeshas is performing for the delight of His Majesty Ganesha and thus this is a very special occasion for this disciple to make his debut. Incidentally, it also involves a spiritual symbolism. It is only Him who, in whatever form, recites all songs, plays all instruments and listens to all sung or played.

This moderately clad and ordinarily bejewelled cute figure of Lord Ganesha is worthy of both, a shrine and a drawing-hall. Wood is ordinarily a tough medium, but the artist has created out of it an excellent piece of art which is simply superb in facial expressions, bodily proportions, depiction of action and an over-all elegance. Lord Ganesha is sitting like a professional holding the drum between his legs and belly. Instead of looking at his drum he has his gaze fixed on the presiding Lord for knowing his reaction to his performance. This depicts his confidence and it is with such self confidence and contentment that he is playing upon his instrument spontaneously and detached from the world around.

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!

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.
