Ganesha, the versatile god, full of vitality, humour and benevolence has wide-spread appeal in Madhubani. The artist has chosen to deviate from the prescribed norms. Ganesha here is elongated with his popular characteristic, the potbelly missing. The thin elephant head wears a beautifully designed crown, which stands overshadowed by the large fan shaped ears. The third eye of Ganesha is more prevalent in the Tantrik depictions but finds a prominent place here. The trunk alone hosts a variety of colours and designs. Both the tusks are shown intact here. The red coloured body of Ganesha is decorated with numerous colourful ornaments. His lotus seat is also flaming red, with this being the most prominently used colour in this painting.
Two mice are vertically placed on either side of Ganesha, compromising with the scarcity of space; the rest of the canvas being occupied by flowers, vines and leaves, making it visually very colourful.
