Ganesha is popular as the son of the great goddess Parvati, the counterpart of the great Siva. But his claim to fame is his helpfulness in overcoming difficulties and his benevolence.
Ganesha dancing on a round lotus pedestal, placed on a square one. His vehicle the mouse can be seen clinging on to the pedestal. He matches Shiva Nataraja in the most subtle postures of the dance. Ganesha is dressed in a short dhoti, ending much above his knees. He has a serpent around his abdomen. He wears a karandamukuta (conical crown) and bracelets & armlets in his arms. Various necklaces adorn his neck & chest. In this dancing posture, he raises his right leg and bends it inwards. With the tip of his trunk, he partakes a laddoo held in his left hand. Ganesha holds a noose in his upper left hand. The noose helps us to control human passions. In the upper right hands he holds the elephant goad, goading us on to the path of Dharma.
