This sculpture represents the Hindu god Ganesha, the deity of auspicious beginnings, who is also worshipped by both Buddhists and Jains. Ganesha's distinctive characteristic is the elephant's head integrated into the otherwise human body. His boyishness is conveyed by his chubby physique and playful behaviour. Roly-poly children are much adored in South Asia, and, therefore, most representations of boys and dwarfs are generously endowed with substantial flesh.

This pleasant and delightful wooden image of Lord Ganesha represents him in a highly majestic profile, intimate moments and great leisure. In full ease the tension-free Lord is reclining like a feudal chief against a huge bolster, which rests under his right arm. He wears a highly elaborate crown and has large fan-like ears. Numerous anklets, armlets, bracelets and necklaces adorn his bulky form .

The pronounced stomach is almost wobbly and precariously perched on the oval lotus pedestal which serves as the base for the entire composition. A wide waist-belt seems to amplify his girth. The inner bliss reflecting on Ganesha'a face and his absolute ease define the mood and demeanour of the great Lord. There reigns on his face a benign sublimity and great composure.

The sculpture has been carved totally in the round (see accompanying image) with the neat coils of his hair visibly tumbling out of his crown..

This skilfully carved statue comes from Thammapatty (district Salem) in Tamil Nadu. The sculptor is Shri P. Sengottuvel.
