This sculpture presents a well-modeled and polished head of Trimukha Ganesha. He is the god who removes all obstacles. In the Brahmanical rituals and worship his puja (worship) precedes the pujas of all other gods and goddesses and this is why Ganesha in also known as Agrapujya.

Each of the three heads of Ganesha is adorned with a beautiful crown (Karandamakuta) and chains around the frontal humps. The eyes are open; the forehead of the central head is incised with a flower in the shape of an urna, between the eyebrows. The trunk of the central head is turned on the proper left side holding a mango with its tip. The central head has two tusks of unequal length. The upper portion of the trunk is encircled by a beautiful chain with a pendent. The trunks of the side heads are raised up and each one has a tusk. The neck of the central head is also adorned with a necklace.

Trimukha Ganesha has been mentioned in the Ganesalilarnavanataka of Maharajah Serfoji II (1736-1739 A.D.), a play written in 18th century mentions that sage Narada intervenes in Act III of the play and explains that the three faces of Trimukha Ganapati had appeared to kill the demon Sindhu, who had imprisoned the god Indra. The three heads represent the god Vishnu in the center, Siva to the left and the creator Brahma to the right.

Icono-plastically, Trimukha Ganesha in known in India since ancient times. But its earliest representations are very few. A stele near the temple of Pisacamo cana, Varanasi (U.P.) is perhaps the oldest one. It belongs to the period of 14th century A.D. The antiquity and iconography of the image was pointed out by P.K. Agarwal in his article, "Some Varansi images of Ganapati and their iconographical problem," in Artibus Asiae, Vol. XXXIX, pp. 139-155. Another example of Trimukha Ganesha belonging to the easily period in from Karnataka. The temple of Kolaramma, in Kolar, Karnataka, has a composite representation of a three faced Ganesha in terracotta belonging to the period of 14th cent. A.D. The central face represents Ganesha, Hanuman to the right and Garuda, the vehicle of Vishnu to the left. Trimukha Ganesha is also mentioned in a 19th century illustrated manuscript of the Sritattvanidhi, preserved in the university of Mysore.

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.
