This representation of the elephant-headed god, with a prominent broken tusk in his lower right hand, relates to his Ekadanta – one tusked form, which symbolizes the termination of duality, the signleness of mind and the unity of cosmic existence. Those who chant : 'Ekadantaya namah' – salutations to the Ekadanta, are able to attain oneness of mind and with such single minded devotion are able to achieve all the desired. This one-tusked form has associated with it a number of legends, some of them being immensely popular. As the legendary tradition has it, once when with Brahma, who fathered the Creation, Lord Ganesh was asked to be his scribe to write down the Vedas as Brahma dictated them to him. Lord Ganesh had no pen. He hence broke one of his tusks and using it as pen scribed the Vedas.

Another legend has it differently. One day his parents – Shiva and Parvati, were resting in their chamber leaving Ganesh outside with instructions not to allow anyone to enter in. Meanwhile, there came Parasurama, the Brahmin warrior known for his short temper and wrathful nature. He wished to immediately see Lord Shiva but Ganesh did not allow him to enter his chamber. The exchange of words turned into an exchange of weapons. Parasurama tried all weapons, one after the other, and when all failed, he picked up his 'parasu', a celestial battle-axe, which Lord Shiva had himself given him. Lord Ganesh recognised his father's weapon and in reverence to it, allowed it to hit him. He bore it on his right tusk, which it broke.

A third, and perhaps the most popular one, is far more interesting. Ganesh had a weakness for 'modakas' – ball-shaped sweet. On one of his birth-days he consumed more 'modakas' than his belly had space for. This over-eating made him uneasy. To relieve himself of it, he thought of strolling around for a while. Riding his mouse when he reached forest, there appeared serpent Vasuki. Seeing the serpent his mouse, throwing away his master, ran away into the forest. When thrown, his belly burst and 'modakas' contained therein rolled away all around. Lord Ganesh greedily collected each one and put it back into his belly and to avoid any further risk picked up the serpent Vasuki and tied around his belly. The Moon god with his wife was seeing this curious drama and could not conrol his laughter. With fury in eyes, Lord Ganesh looked at the Moon god and, as he had no weapon in hands, broke one of his tusks and hurled it at the Moon.

The Ekadanta Lord is in a posture that reveals unique ease. In sculptural tradition this posture is known as 'lalitasana' – a sitting posture that reveals beauty of form. This thirty-six inches tall and fifteen inches wide wood-piece has, as its base, a lotus 'pitha' and as its apex a 'prabhavali' comprising conventionalised floral creeper. The elephant headed god is seated on a large sized fully blooming lotus. Beyond shoulder-height the prabhavali consists of beautifully designed floral creeper with parrots perching on it. In his upper hands, Ganesha is carrying a goad and a noose. Elaborately bejewelled and partially costumed image of Ekadanta is a magnificent piece of art.

This statue was created in district Salem, Tamil Nadu. The artist is Shri P. Sengottuvel.
