Hindu Ganesh (Ganesha) Elephant God Statue Seated on Lotus
This Ganesh statue of the Hindu elephant god is shiny and rich in detail, with warm bronze colors and subtle pastels added by the artists hand.
Ganesh is the deity of good fortune, new ventures, wisdom and the removal of obstacles. He is the archetype of the all-wise and beneficent. His attributes are shell, discus, club and water lily, held in each of his four hands, and his vehicle is a rat.
Huge yet gentle, humble enough to ride upon the insignificant rat, his figure in its totality represents the indivisible universe. In his dancing form, serpent-belted, Ganesh evokes the tremendous creative power of his father Shiva. Lotuses at his feet magnify Ganesh's fertility.
Exquisite detail. Colors vary a little depending on the lighting you choose to show off your statue.
