Of extremely sweat countenance, he is the most easily recognizable of all the great deities. Before beginning a new project, every religious Hindu prays to Lord Ganesha and seeks his blessings. Not only Hinduism, the Buddhist and Jains have also incorporated Ganesha in their pantheon.

Riding a chariot driven by four saddled and harnessed rats, Ganesha looks divine. In two upper hands, he holds his usual attributes, the ankusha and the pasa. He utilizes the other two hands in manoeuvring the chariot. The chariot itself is fancy with festoons and trimmings of all kinds. Ganesha is dressed in a loin-cloth and adorned with lavish jewellery. The rats are huge in size and saddled in a rich fashion. By giving them triangular teeth, the artist has tried to induce ferocity in the rodents. Even though he has worked in monochrome, the work does not reflect monotony. The festoons and decorations hanging from the chariot and from the border of the painting lend a joyous look to the auspicious theme.

The rat driven chariot, carrying Ganesha is not frequently found on temple walls. The artist uses the traditional iconography coupled with his imagination and immense skill and the marvellous result is here for us to see.

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.
