The greatness of loving God Ganesha, the
Lord of Dharma, and the son of Shiva, is echoed worldwide in Hinduism,
even by the satgurus, temples, and scriptures. He is the one for all, whose
presence as a vital part of daily life’s experiences of his devotees helps them
have a tension free life, without any obstructions. The finite quality of this
Ganesha brass sculpture induces a feeling of charm and love for it, as and when
a person sees it. Having the lord seated on a highly chiseled Ashta-Ganesha (eight
Ganeshas) pedestal in Utkutasana, Ganesha blesses devotees of strength and fearlessness
with the right anterior hand and left has the favourite modak which he is
supposedly holding with the trunk to eat without any wait.
Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi are always worshipped together in Hinduism, especially during the festival of Diwali. Lakshmi adopted Ganesha as her son and took an oath that not worshipping Ganesha with Lakshmi will keep the person far away from the blessings of Sri (Goddess Lakshmi). Praying Ganesha and Lakshmi together is a way to gain success without any obstacles. Talking about the bright yellow-gold hue, every minutest feature is vividly displayed in this base shade. Wide open eyes seem to be vigilant to the negativities of the world and the trishul (trident) mark on forehead is suggestive of his patronage.
You can’t stop admiring the lavish patterns of Ganesha’s dhoti bedecked in treasures of beads and gold chains along the knees that complement with the floral pendant necklaces of varied sizes. The floral etched trunk and embellished ears are a matter of sculptor’s love for art and creativity. Apart from this, you can’t stop yourself from eulogizing the intricacy of carves of his crown in thin horizontal layers and the royal jewel beautified in the centre.
