If Hindu life and belief is rooted in mythology of gods and goddesses, then Indian art is wholly given over to religion. While talking of Indian art, it is noteworthy that Ganesha, with his unusual body form, makes for the most popularly represented deity.

The six-armed Bala-Ganesha walks on, together with mooshaka (rat), his vahana. Besides the elephant goad and the noose, which are his most formidable attributes, he holds a rosary and serpent, associated with Brahma and Shiva respectively. His two main hands carry a water vessel and a dish full of modakas. His curly hair is kept in semblance with a scarf that is adorned with strings of pearls and peacock feathers tucked in. His eyes portray an innocence found in children; his short, thick trunk is on the right turning inwards. The stout stature of his body reinforces the child he is portrayed as. The artist has achieved a movement in the image, due to the motion of limbs thus depicted. For once, the elephant god and the mouse are in correct proportion. He holds a long stick, the end of which has a bundle, which probably contains more modakas. In the other hand, he carries a garland. The two walk on as inseparable companions.
