The Kashmiri poet Somadeva composed a number of eulogies in honour of the dancing Ganesha, many of which communicate the joyousness that characterizes such images. One of them, when translated, reads:

Victory to Ganesha,
who when dancing makes a shower of stars
fall like a rain of flowers
from the sky by the movement of his trunk.

Nrtt (dancing) Ganesha is a popular stance encountered in temples all over India. It is possibly inspired by the image of his father, Shiva, the divine dancer. The gyrating Ganesha here also holds a snake in one hand, besides the noose and the elephant goad. The serpent, once again, is an attribute of Shiva.

With the left leg raised, Ganesha elegantly balances his bulky body. He is dressed in all his finery and an attractive diadem. One broken tusk is prominent, close to the trunk that curls towards the left. Ganesha's eyes are human-like, but sharply slanting.

Disproportionate in size and stature, Ganesha's vehicle, the mouse, sits unnoticed in one corner. Strange as it might seem, but the mighty elephant god chose a tiny mouse as his vahana.
