In terms of the world, a man cannot be an elephant, yet this can be true in terms of divinity, for divinity is that in which opposites co-exist, Ganapati is represented as an elephant-headed man to express the unity of microcosm and macrocosm.

Nrtt Ganesha, popular in Nepal and Tibet, is executed in brass with fine bends. He raises his right foot with the toes touching the ground and the leg bent outwards; the left leg also bends at the knee but the foot is flatly on the ground - the limbs forming a rhythmic pose. His ornamental multilayered crown looks exquisite with a prabhavali at the back. As usual, he is shown with surpakarna, a single task and his trunk turned towards the left. He has four arms - each hand holding a veena, a damaru, clappers and a ghanta. His pot belly is held in place by a serpent belt - as the story goes, once Ganesha on his return from a feast, tripped on a snake and fell with all the modakas flowing out of his stomach. The moon laughed at him, making Ganesha angry. He caught hold of the serpent and tied his belly with it. He not only wears Shiva's symbol on the forehead, but a loin cloth like his father.

His vahana, the mouse, with a long tail, holds a modaka for his master.
