Art and religion are knitted together in a manner that it becomes impossible to separate the two. Line and colour are tools that help to express the artists religious sentiments.

The elephant headed deity is one of the most frequently encountered icons of the Hindu pantheon. Images of Ganesha are often installed over the entrance to almost any structure where people live or work. In a horizontal panel are three niches housing an equal number of important deities. The middle niche has Ganesha seated in a lotus position. As in most images, while Ganesha's head is painted white, his body is pink, a shade of red believed to be the colour of the muladhara chakra, over which Ganesha presides. .

Images of Lakshmi, goddess of prosperity and Saraswati, goddess of learning flank that of Ganesha in order to amplify his various attributes. Lakshmi is seated on a inverted lotus pedestal. Though her iconography is today varied but the earliest images all show her seated on a lotus. In the back two hands, Lakshmi holds two lotus flowers on which are placed elephants with flywhisks held in their trunks. Saraswati's gleaming white body expresses well her purity and transcendence keeping in with her association with sattvaguna. .

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.
