Softstone (Medium, 39cm)


This intricate sculpture of Ganesha hand carved by Indian Artist R.Mani is one of Hinduism’s most popular deities. 

Ganesh, the son of Shiva and Parvati and brother of Murugan is well known as a remover of obstacles. He brings wisdom, success and good luck. Elevated by the traditional style learnt from skills passed down by generations, R.Mani communicates the layers of history and symbolic language that is so rich in Indian art. 

Lord Ganesh sits above a supporting lotus in the Lalitasana position or “royal ease”. His large ears extend forward intently with the capacity to listen and assimilate ideas. A halo surrounds Ganesh’s head indicating the sacredness of this revered god. He is portrayed with four arms, each representing the four realms of beings including the sea, land, water and air. The medium of soft stone compliments the detailed carving resonating its own pattern of marble tones including earthy reds and umber. 

About Ganesha

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.
