Details

Dressed regally, Ganesha sits on a throne with a mouse by his feet. According to Hindu lore, the mouse is his spiritual vehicle and symbolizes Ganesha's wisdom, intelligence, and presence of mind. Of his four arms, one is held up in blessing, one cups his favorite dessert and the other two hold spiritual weapons. Chander Kant reveals Ganesha's presence in a hand-carved kadam wood sculpture. Detailed with admirable artistry, Ganesha's head is supported by a florid chakra.
