This sculpture represents the Hindu god Ganesha, the deity of auspicious beginnings, who is also worshipped by both Buddhists and Jains. Ganesha's distinctive characteristic is the elephant's head integrated into the otherwise human body. His boyishness is conveyed by his chubby physique and playful behaviour. Roly-poly children are much adored in South Asia, and, therefore, most representations of boys and dwarfs are generously endowed with substantial flesh.

This pleasant and delightful wooden image of Lord Ganesha represents him in a highly majestic profile, intimate moments and great leisure. In full ease the tension-free Lord is reclining like a feudal chief against a huge bolster, which rests under his right arm. He wears a highly elaborate crown and has large fan-like ears. Numerous anklets, armlets, bracelets and necklaces adorn his bulky form .

The pronounced stomach is almost wobbly and precariously perched on the oval lotus pedestal which serves as the base for the entire composition. A wide waist-belt seems to amplify his girth. The inner bliss reflecting on Ganesha'a face and his absolute ease define the mood and demeanour of the great Lord. There reigns on his face a benign sublimity and great composure.

The sculpture has been carved totally in the round (see accompanying image) with the neat coils of his hair visibly tumbling out of his crown..

This skilfully carved statue comes from Thammapatty (district Salem) in Tamil Nadu. The sculptor is Shri P. Sengottuvel.



Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.

  • This is a great work both in posture, colour and detail however it is too large for display in a house. Does the artist make the same work in a piece about 300 to 400 mm long? Why is the rat not shown anywhere?
    If you wish to reply to any of my questions please do. Ilive in Australia thus you may have to include au on my e.mail

  • Such a gorgeous statue. Could you please advise whether this statue is hand painted and whether the paint is durable. What sort of wood is used? Thank you.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
