The Sacred Silhouette Of Ganesha

Colors available: 7
Current: Amazing Green Chola

The silhouette of Ganesha is unmistakable. The chubby limbs, the pot belly, the signature trunk, and the large ears are each enough to give away His sacred presence. The adorable boy-deity of the Hindu pantheon, Ganesha is arguably the most deeply loved deity; His icons, the most widely stocked up on. This Ganesha is small enough to fit into the palm of the devotee, the gracious lines of the sculpture fusing together to compose a sublime image. He reclines on a bolster large enough to outdo His famous-across-the-heavens tummy. The palm of the supporting hand is turned outwards in blessing, the minimalistic lines of which are superbly expressive. The same goes for the rest of His limbs - the raised knee, the other hand that rests on it, and the other leg stretched loosely beneath the folds of His long dhoti.

There is much to this highly stylised Ganesha that sets it apart from your run-of-the-mill handheld Ganesha sculptures. The trunk is long and slender and graceful as it sits closely on the curve of His full belly. Despite the minimalistic definitions of this composition, the garment the deity is draped in is considerably realistic. The characteristic curve of His large ears is a beauteous aspect, while the Shaivite tilak on the forehead - indicative of His parentage, that He is the son of Shiva - renders this unputdownable. Note the subtler details such as the angle of the foot that emerges from the hem of the dhoti, and the lifelike engraving on the side of the bolster.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
