In keeping with the proportions of those huge elephant-ears that flank His head, Lord Ganesha wears an elaborate crown. The engravings on it are dense, done with super-precise attention to detail and scale.
A spiked halo surrounds the head, and a trishool (trident) tilaka marks the brow. As a complement to His divine adornments is the janeu that reaches all the way down the torso to the thigh. Zoom in on the gracious eyes of the Lord, the expression within them of the twin childlike qualities of innocence and wisdom.
