Ganesha has a very important position in Brahmanical pantheon. He is the son of Parvati and Shiva-Maheshvara. The worship of Ganesha precedes the worship of all other gods and goddesses in Brahmanism, for which he is given the epithet of Agrapujya. Apart from this, Ganesha has many other epithets, like Gajanana, Vighnesha, Lambodara etc.

He has been represented in various schools of arts in different materials, forms, gestures and postures. He is pot-bellied in all of his representations. Here he has been shown in a dancing posture. He is dancing on a circular base attached to a reverse lotus flower placed on a rectangular pedestal. The base of the pedestal is comparatively wide. A layer of the body of the pedestal is incised with lotus petals. His mount, the mouse, has been shown at the corner of the pedestal on the proper left side.

Ganesha's left leg is slightly bent and touching the base with the front sole, while the right leg is upturned and touching the waist. This dancing posture is known as ardhparyankasana in the iconographical texts.

He has four hands: the upper right hand is holding an elephant goad (ankusha), while the lower one is bearing a broken tusk. The upper left hand is holding a noose (pasha), while the lower one a laddu (sweetmeat), which is being brushed by his trunk, curving to the left. He has drooping ears which is partially edged with a design. His eyes are open and the centre of forehead is incised with a wheel. He has two unequal length of tusks (one is broken). His hair is partially tied in a hair-do and partially falling on the back. He is wearing a beautiful crown. The frontal humps are incised with decoration and encircled by chains. The upper portion of the trunk is also incised with designs. There are many wrinkles on the trunk. The ornaments he is wearing include necklaces, armlets, bracelets, a waist-band, girdles and anklets etc. The trunk is also encircled by a chain with pendent. A cobra is encircled around his stomach. Moreover, he is wearing a sacred-thread and scarf. An end of the scarf, incised with stylized designs, is attached to the throne.

One of the earliest representation of dancing Ganesha has been discovered in a Shiva temple of Bahur (South India) belonging to the period of 8th century A.D. of the reign of Pallava. In that representation, Ganesha bears in his four hands a broken tusk, elephant goad, noose (pasha) and sweetmeat (modaka).

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
