Ganesha's timeless appeal has been captured to perfection in this watercolour by artist Tulsi Das Vimbark. From the chubby limbs in their usual stance, to the characteristic pot-belly of the indulgent laddoo-lover, this painting inspires a world of affection in the heart of the devotee. Note the soft glow of the skin, the effulgence of the elephant-countenance. The golden halo that graces the head offers a contrast to the muted twilight of the background. His jet black curls reach below the shoulders, which probably Parvati, His mother, has arranged in bands of jewels and decorated with a peacock feather. The rest of the deity is clad in colourful silks and studded ornaments across the arms, wrists, torso, neck, and ankles.
Ganesha is rightly named Trilakyamohana. In Sanskrit, 'trilokya' means the three realms of existence and 'mohana' means 'one who enchants'. This boy-deity's celebrated innocence, propensity to grant boons, and childlike beauty enchants the inhabitants of this world as well as the divine. His face is the very picture of invincibility and sublime patience. The trishul on His brow is meant to indicate that He is the son of none other than the cosmic destroyer, Shiva, Himself.
This watercolour would make for a cheerful addition to your space. Seated on a slightly overgrown tree-stump, He would bless your sanctum with His divine gaze. Right afore the thick brushstrokes of the stump, upon the pale pastel green of the grass, is His vahana, the mouse, with an offering of laddoo in its paws. The shadow of the darkening twilight settles upon the luxuriant foliage in the background, while the resplendence of Ganesha's form pours forth from the painting.
