This murti of the Hindu boy-god Ganesha is a one-of-a-kind work of art. Its beauty lies in the high-quality brass His form has been carved out of, its natural unpolished finish lending it a piercing sheen. The handsome Lord sits on a traditional lotus mount embedded with a bunch of scripture-scrolls. He is in a semi-squatting posture, the adorable plumpness of His full belly set off by the proportions of His legs. Note the snake that holds His tummy in place, because once it burst after a round of divine gorging. His ample adornments become His revered personality, while the dhoti is fashioned in amazing detail. His vahan, the poor mouse, scrambles for space by His side.
The four arms of the Lord (chaturbhuja) bear the characteristic goad, a noose to rope adharmis back to the path, a bowl of His favourite sweetmeats (from which He has picked one up with His delicate tusk), and a gesture of blessing. With the last He holds His only tusk (ekdanta), the implement He used to write the epic Mahabharata. His serence composure of countenance, the very picture of compassion (dayavanta), is set off by the winnow ears, the lotus-laced halo, and chunky tassels spread about His crown. Note the embellishments on His trunk, often done by devotees on elephants across the subcontinent.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
