This resplendent Ganesha image consecrated inside a floral arch represents, though with slight deviation, the Srashti Ganapati form of Ganesha. Srashti Ganapati is the Lord of happy 'manifestation'. The four armed Srashti Ganapati is said to ride a happy mouse, has smaller ears, a lavishly adorned but small helmet and thoughtful eyes. Srashti Ganapati usually carries in hands a noose, goad, tusk and mango or 'modaka' but variedly in other texts he carries beads, any one of his usual weapons, 'abhaya' and 'modaka'. In this manifestation of his Srashti Ganapati form the artist has a little deviated from both of these models. Instead of beads his upper right hand is empty but suggestive of commemoration. His other right hand is in 'abhaya' and his left hands carry a battle-axe and 'modakas'.

The artist has, however, greatly excelled in his other innovations, which make this Ganapati form more characteristic of the god of Srashti, or that of creation. He has added to Srashti Ganapati form a flower arch consisting of creepers, leaves and corn, a contrast to Shiva's fire-arch of 'Anandatandava', the dance for dissolution. Shiva's arch consists of flames all over, the symbol of conflagration of the creation. The arch of Srashti Ganapati sends forth vegetation and corn and is the symbol of creation, life and productivity. His sash stretches on both sides - right and left, in equal measure and proportion symbolising cosmic balance, the key of creation. His mouse, representing nature, is quite healthy and fully grown. It has been based on a smooth round disc, obviously the symbol of earth. This round disc, the earth, lies stretched upon a lotus pedestal. Lotus is obviously the ocean. The earth, submerged during the deluge, now floats on ocean's surface and the nature has on it a congenial climate to grow and prosper.

In craftsmanship this brass-piece is simply superb. Lord Ganesha has been invoked by hundreds of name, which include 'Maha Pandit', 'Brahmin' etc. With his elegantly fully covered legs, bare feet, impressive forehead and postures of his hands he looks very much a Brahmin. The artist did not subordinate aesthetic interest to votive ones. He did not hence over-adorned his image. His pot belly is usually a matter of artistic delight but this master-caster kept his belly in reasonable proportion and did not depend on quaint things for his appeal. Despite a total mythological theme the artist's sense of realism is very strong. Had it not been Ganapati's heavy weight on its back, the mouse might have gone away long back.
