The prince of paraloka (otherworldly realm or heaven) is dressed in silk and jewels aplenty. A roseate gold dhoti with bootidar angavastram and a studded crown on His head, in addition to the necklaces and bracelets and anklets on His person. The laddoo that He cradles in His anterior left hand (He is chaturbhujadhari, one possessed of four arms) is an integral part of His iconography, His love for those Indian sweetmeats a symbol of His childlike innocence and wisdom. Note the bare, minimalistic aureole that serves to frame the stately central Ganesha figure.
