This statue of the master lyrist Ganesha is one of the members of the foregoing band of musicians. He is performing on a 'sitara' like instrument and is obviously the master of his art. He is an integral part of the band and is performing for it, though not so much to its tunes as to out-tune others. The master lyrist is in a duelsome mood and after each of his strokes is looking defiantly at his opponent to see whether he is able to keep in tune or not. The artist has discovered in his face and demeanour his challenging mood as also his egoistic confidence leading him to think that the notes his strokes on lyre create may not be created by his opponent.

As compared to the presiding Lord the band of performing Ganeshas has been placed on a raised platform consisting of well adorned slabs supported on lotuses. The master lyrist has a robust figure and is in inch to inch occupation of his share of the platform. The artist has caught him in moments when in the course of his performance he is undergoing the musical duel, the conventional 'jugalabandi' or 'yugalabandi'. He is performing obviously in competition to the master drummer who is in alike defiant mood. The right inclined tilt of his figure is diagonally opposed to the left tilt of the drumming master.


This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.
