Hail to thee of auspicious form, whose head is  crowned with a garland of stars, so that thou art like  the peak of Mount Meru! I adore thy trunk flung up  straight in the joy of the dance, so as to sweep the  clouds, like a column supporting the edifice of the  three worlds. Destroyer of obstacles, I worship thy  snake-adorned body swelling out into a broad  pitcher-like belly, the treasure house of all success.

This prayer by the Kasmiri poet Somadeva (ca 11th century), celebrates Ganesha in his dancing form. Indeed very much like his father, and his companions (ganas), Ganesha loves to dance. Images of dancing Ganesha remain a testimony to the skill of the Indian sculptor, who manages to convey an extraordinary sense of buoyancy and lithe movement inspite of Ganesha's ample, bulky form.

Here Ganesha dances with his right leg raised in joyous abandon, and the left heel slightly lifted, the same foot being balanced solely on the toes. His legs are short and chubby. The beautifully delineated trunk is incised and holds his a modaka (sweet meat) in it. This being Ganesha's favorite food. His four dynamic arms hold an elephant goad; his severed tooth; a noose; and a modak again. Ganesha wears a detailed crown which hoods his forehead completely, and is capped with a four-tiered pyramidal structure. His two large ears fan out in either direction, and he wears a short dhoti in his lower torso, while the upper body is bare, except for a serpent coiled like a girdle around his elaborate stomach. It is believed that it is the snake that prevents Ganesha's stomach from falling apart, it being severely overloaded with eatables. A sacred thread falls across his left shoulder.

Ganesha's mount, the mouse can be seen paying obeisance to him at the lower left.

This sculpture was created in Aligarh, a small town in the central Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

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.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
