This magnificent Ganesha on the silk painting from Orissa is the very picture of the macrocosm represented by Ganesha, dancing gaily on the rat representing the microcosm.

Here, Ganesha's body is as dark as the clouds, his white tusk has the clouds immobilized, his glance is like the rainbow, his exudations are like rain which makes the wheat grow. This black Ganesha wears a loin cloth of various prints. The bright, turquoise coloured uttariya flows from both his shoulders. He is adorned with anklets, bracelets, armlets, a pectoral is in his neck and an elegant crown on his head. A serpent encircles his abdomen. In his right hands, Ganesha holds a rosary, his broken tusk and an elephant goad. In the left hands he holds a modaka, his favourite sweet meat, a flute and an axe. It is interesting to note that the rosary is almost invariably present in one of the hands of Ganesha in most paintings from Orissa.

Ganesha gracefully lifts his right foot as he dances on the back of this tiny creative that also happens to be his vehicle. The rat or the mouse is the symbol of coiled up energy of the ascending and descending kundalini. Ganesha's vehicle here is saddled and its neck is adorned by a stylized pearl necklace.

This already colouful painting has more design and colour added to it by the twin four sided borders, that helps in making it more attractive.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
