There are engravings upon the bodies of the petals as well as the garb of the little mouse. A clutch of vines are on either side of the body of the kamalasana.

The sheer proportion of jewellery on Lord Ganesha’s body is indicative of the sculptor’s skill as well as shraddha. Flowers and jewels abound, each of them an offering of His many devotees. They enhance the childlike beauty of His chubby form, the wisdom and innocence of His stance. The ornate, haloed crown that sits above the trishoola tilaka (trident tattoo) on the mid-brow is as good as an aureole.
