A glittering mask of Ganesha to grace a wall in your home or office. A substantial composition, it measures 24.00” from the zenith of the crown to the lowermost curve of the trunk. The elephant-head of the son of Shiva-Parvati is an object of ritual worship as well as a means of interior decoration with a spiritual theme.
The Ganesha mask that you see on this page is a pure brass composition. Dreamy half-shut eyes indicative of deep introspection, an ornate crown engraved in perfect symmetry, and a serrated trunk give life to the lustrous, golden medium. Note the lifelike musculature of the Lord’s ears, and the gorgeous adornments that grace the delicate inner folds.
The tip of Ganesha’s trunk cradles a ritual kalasha arrangement. It is a small pot whose mouth is overlain with banana leaves and a coconut. This adds to the ritual value of this murti. The simple, geometric tattoo at the base of His trunk and the broken tusk detail are signature aspects of the Ganesha iconography.
