Although he was late to rise into the hierarchy of the Great gods, Ganesha rose beyond them in popularity. Ganesha, in his baffling shape – his elephant headed, pot–bellied body – holds the secret of his origin.

On a rectangular pedestal sits the image of Ganesha in sukhasana. He is shown with his four most frequently depicted attributes: the single tusk, the elephant goad, the noose and the sweet edible ball. Ganesha used the missing tusk for writing the Mahabharata as narrated by Vyasa. He used the elephant goad and the noose to bring to book the demons of Obstacles and that of Arrogance respectively. He wears an intricately carved crown and ornaments and uses a serpent as the udarband, the stomach band. His long trunk curls to reach the sweet ball held in his left hand.

On either side of the image, on the pedestal, are two mice waiting on Ganesha with folded paws. The mouse, his vehicle, has the ability to reach every nook and cranny with ease. Behind the image is a carved niche, enhanced by symbolic adornment, i.e. an image known as the kirtimukha. It is a fusion of man and beast. Here, in the guise of a lion, it is known as Simha-Mukha.

Intricately carved in brass, this image of Ganesha is rich in symbolism.
