This four-armed icon of Lord Ganapati is one of his highly worshipped votive forms elaborated in early texts. It has been identified as Tryakshara Ganapati, or the Lord of three alphabets - AUM. This form of Lord Ganesha stands for greater good and is the most auspicious of his all forms for Ganapati, who is by himself the lord of auspices, has been added with the most sacred syllable 'Aum' which is considered as much auspicious in Indian tradition. Trayakshara Ganapati is a simpler form but endowed with spiritual serenity and quite significant symbolism. One of the legs of Tryakshara Ganapati is set on the earth whereas the other one stretches from left to right. His figure with a towering crown surmounted by a finial has an upward thrust, that is, the auspicious Lord casts his spell from earth to sky and horizon to horizon. Tradition assigns to this form immense auspices and acclaims that its presence bestows with endless blessings showering from all sides.

Gold is the complexion of Trayakshara Ganapati and he radiates even in darkness. He has big floppy ears, which trail down to his shoulders. He usually carries in his four arms broken tusk, goad, noose and a mango and in his trunk a 'laddu'. He is seated on a lotus throne, which in this icon has been doubled giving to his seat an elaborated lotus base. Trayakshara Ganapati is said to have elaborate ornamentation from head to his feet, as has this statue. He has richly laced sash around his waist and the other trailing from his trunk-end down to his thigh. Child-like cute arms, long pointed fingers and attractively bejewelled feet define the beauty of the image.

A partially visible halo behind his head, the fire-arch or 'prabhavali' and the auspicious 'Shrimukha' surmounting it are elements added to Trayakshara Ganapati form. With the bottom base, which imparts to the entire structure a shrine-like look, these elements not only enrich figure's aesthetics but also provide a frame for its better projection. The fire-arch is an artistic essentiality in such icon as without it the figure could not be balanced against a wide-spread vacuum. The 'Shrimukha' surmounting the apex of the fire-arch balances its wide expanse and at the same time adds to it an element of interest.

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.
