This statue of the master lyrist Ganesha is one of the members of the foregoing band of musicians. He is performing on a 'sitara' like instrument and is obviously the master of his art. He is an integral part of the band and is performing for it, though not so much to its tunes as to out-tune others. The master lyrist is in a duelsome mood and after each of his strokes is looking defiantly at his opponent to see whether he is able to keep in tune or not. The artist has discovered in his face and demeanour his challenging mood as also his egoistic confidence leading him to think that the notes his strokes on lyre create may not be created by his opponent.

As compared to the presiding Lord the band of performing Ganeshas has been placed on a raised platform consisting of well adorned slabs supported on lotuses. The master lyrist has a robust figure and is in inch to inch occupation of his share of the platform. The artist has caught him in moments when in the course of his performance he is undergoing the musical duel, the conventional 'jugalabandi' or 'yugalabandi'. He is performing obviously in competition to the master drummer who is in alike defiant mood. The right inclined tilt of his figure is diagonally opposed to the left tilt of the drumming master.

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.
