A classical depiction by artist R. Mani of one of the most loved and worshipped hindu Gods, Lord Ganesha. Ganesh is the son of Shiva and Parvati, and is well known as a remover of obstacles.Every detail in this composition carries meaning. As per tradition, Ganesha sits on a lotus flower, marking his pure, sacred presence. His many hands capture the multidimensional nature of Hindu Gods. Each hand is symbolic of his divine qualities and powers. His bloated belly is symbolic of his ability to peacefully digest all the challenges that come his way. The cobra wrapping his belly, marks Shiva's divine presence. The robe pulls us closer to realising our dreams and goals in life, while the ankusha helps to steer our soul away from ignorance.
