Gentle Ganesha Reclines
The gentle Lord Ganesha reclines on silver bolster. The left leg is stretched straight, the right raised at the knee with the foot resting on a silver cushion. The right arm, chubby as it is, rests on the raised knee. He props Himself up against the left arm resting on the bolster. Such an image of Ganesha - innocent and restful and wise - fills the heart with equal parts adoration and equal parts veneration.
This endearing murti of Ganesha has been sculpted from a fine block of granite. Many would say that it is the hardest medium to work with, given its stubborn texture and almost zero reliance on colour. It takes remarkable skill to pull off a sculpture as dynamic and filled with intricacies of form as the one you see on this page. Handpicked from the studio of the most devoted artisans of this generation, such a murti is fit to grace the home or office of the finest spiritual art-lover.
A bitone palette of black and textured silver makes for a minimalistic statement. The complexion of His body is the natural black of granite, while the ancillaries - attire and adornment, the crown on His head, the cushion and the bolster - are all a striking contrast.
