Ganesha is a beloved Hindu god who is believed to bring good fortune and success in the lives of people. Generally, Ganesha sculptures are shown in standing or sitting posture but the one shown here showcases him as dancing with his left leg on the pedestal and right held high, touching the left one; the tilted posture of his body and head reflects his childish and joyful side. The sculptor has chosen for an antique brass color to outshow his creativity and imaginations while carving the divine himself.
He is adorned in an exquisite ankle length dhoti having perfect creases at the folds and a sleek kamarband that wraps around his waist in an elegant manner; adorned lavishly with enormous precious jewels and a unique crown ornamented on his head, carved exquisitely forming two parallel circular layers at the top. His broadened trunk chiselled in horizontal striations curls towards the left as he tilts his head to right; the cosmic eyes and deeply incised Shaivite tilak on forehead are symbolic of his divinity.
Chaturbhuja dances on a double layered pedestal with the bottom layer designed in floral patterns at corners and the upper one is similar to that of blooming lotus petals. He carries a laddoo in his left anterior hand along with a long snake as a mark of his patronage hung on his hand and right holds the broken tooth symbolizing his dedication for his work; rear hands carry pasa and noose respectively, carved in ultimate realism. Ganesha, being a son of Lord Shiva, is surrounded by snakes on his protruding bely and each of the arms. His sacred vahana, mouse, sits near the Lord’s leg in obeisance to him. If kept as a showpiece on table, it will increase aesthetic as well as spiritual value of the place.
