This image of Lord Ganesh, with legs tilted a little as in exaltation revealing rhythm and dance, conceived with five faces and six arms, is one of his forms classified in scriptures as Heramba Ganapati. In Heramba Ganapati form Lord Ganesh essentially has five faces, though the number of arms varies but usually eight, or ten, not six, as here in this statue. The deity that bestows bliss on all, especially the common folks, Heramba Ganapati is known and worshipped for protecting the poor. This form of Ganesh is equivalent to Shiva’s Sadashiva form. Like Sadashiva, with his four faces he guards all four directions, and with the fifth, all worlds below and above.

Cool and endowed with moonlike translucent soothing complexion Heramba Ganapati is represented in colours as white or with pearl-like body colour, which in stone or metals is alternated with the expression of quiescence that enshrines his face and the entire being. One and sometimes even two of his hands impart ‘abhaya’ which defines in a way Heramba Ganapati’s leading emotion. As varies the number of his hands so vary the attributes he carries in them. In this statue in five of his hands he is carrying goad and noose in upper right and left, trident and sword, in middle right and left, and the lower right, he is holding in ‘abhaya’, while with the lower left, he is holding snake.

A magnificent metal-cast, perhaps the most difficult form of the iconography of Ganesh, it wondrously manages five elephant heads, and almost all front-facing, on a single neck and torso. The artist has avoided using lion’s icon for his mount, which is one of the conventional features of Heramba Ganapati iconography, perhaps because a detached and unsupported figure imbalanced by five heads, as is this statue, a difficult form, could not conveniently rest on the lion’s back. All five trunks, though revealing symmetry, have been differently conceived. One in the centre has been cast as inverted, those flanking it are upwards turned as in Gaja-Lakshmi iconography, and those on extreme right and left, as fully stretched. Besides other jewels, he is wearing a long thick garland down to his navel, a prescribed feature of Heramba Ganapati iconography, and a beautifully patterned loincloth, something like a sewn half trousers of these days.

The figure of the great Lord has been installed on a beautiful lotus pedestal. He is supporting his entire body on the toe of his left foot the rest of which, lifted above the ground, is engaged in dance. A snake supports his other feet, also in dance mode, on its hood. The entire statue reveals sensuous warmth, refined plasticity, unique luminosity and a kind of spiritual serenity. It has tremendously succeeded in maintaining formative proportions, unity of form, symmetry of parts and its overall aesthetics.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

Thank you. I purchased some books from you in the past and was so pleased by the care with which they were packaged. It's good to find a bookseller who loves books.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
