Lord Ganesha is worshipped in Hinduism as an endearing Elephant-faced god who is the guardian of the Sanatana Dharma, remover of obstacles, patron of Arts and Sciences, mediator and intercessor between man and god. He is the god on our side, our friend, our protector and benefactor. This brass statue of Ganesha is heavily veiled in alluring ethnic designs that enhance his beauty and a cosmic aura. He sits on a stylized Ashta Ganesha (eight Ganeshas) pedestal reminding us of the eight divine abodes of Ganesha with the Mooshakraj (sacred vahana) in obeisance on the left and pooja kalash on the right.
Dhoti he is garbed in is embellished in rich traditional flairs and precise chisels of floral designs highlighted beautifully on the knees and an ornated kamarband that complements with the precious multiple long necklaces and the lavish intricately chiseled flower haloed crown adorned with a beautiful peacock feather on right glorifies on his head. Chaturbhuja is in his famous abhaya mudra and the other hand holds his favorite sweetmeat motichoor laddoo. Posterior hands hold his iconic weapons that demolish evil and show the right path to his loving devotees.
The trunk is highly carved in amazing patterns and the flappy ears are tattooed in graceful designs. The sculptor has marked his forehead with a trishul tilak reminding us of his patronage. Zoom in to the image and carefully look at either side of this sculpture having a layered flower pattern that starts from his shoulders and runs down to his legs such that he is garbed in a flower stole. The beauty of this sculpture lies in its large size and the way it is carved in précised and and luxurious traditional patterns and the way it is moulded in smooth and shiny edges.
