White Marble (Small, 16.5cm)
This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.
This small white marble carving of Lord Ganesh is crafted with a contemporary influence. The simplicity of shape is executed in short sharp lines by our Indian artist V. Sompura. This minimalist approach achieves a unique modern appearance.
Ganesh sits on an elevated lotus with one leg tucked under him also known as the Lalitasana position or “royal ease”. Both arms are raised in symmetry each holding an axe to symbolise cutting off all bonds to attachment. His other two arms are lowered, resting on his knees. The left hand holding Ganesh’s favourite dessert; Modak. The other hand is raised in the abhaya mudra symbolising fearlessness and protection. Ganesh gently rests his trunk on his protruding belly. His trunk turned to the left to symbolise success in the world.
ABOUT LORD GANESH
Lord Ganesh is a son of Lord Shiva and his wife, Goddess Parvati. Clearly distinguished by his elephant head, Ganesh is a symbol of perseverance, protection, well-being, health, and prosperity. In India, Lord Ganesh is followed by every religion as a welcoming gesture or an introductory deity to start a new chapter in life (job, new house, wedding, etc.). Symbolically, the rat, which is his vahan or vehicle, is a representation of chaos, while a bloated tummy depicts accepting all inhibitions and negativities. Truly, Lord Ganesh brings joys and unlimited bliss to our lives.
