Details

Sitting on a splendid throne, Lord Ganesha blesses those who are faithful. He is also known as Vinayak ("Knowledgeable") or Vighneshwer ("God to Remove Obstacles"). Regarded as a benevolent deity, he is always called upon to bless any auspicious event. From Suresh and Devender Garg, this fantastic sculpture is hand-carved from kadam wood with rich detail and vivid artistry.

Ganesha is the son of the mighty god Siwa and the Goddess Parwati. Legend tells that while pregnant, a powerful demon appeared wanting to destroy heaven. The only thing that could destroy the demon and prevent the destruction of heaven was a demi-god who is neither animal nor human, but rather a combination of the two. The group of gods thus brought an elephant before Parwati, who had just given birth. She cast a powerful spell causing her newborn baby to take on characteristics of the powerful elephant and, in effect, creating the half-animal, half-man demi-god that could fight off the demon. The baby Ganesha then succeeded in killing the cruel demon and solidifying his legend.

"Distinctive, wonderfully charming, superbly executed!"

There must be many secrets to successful Jali openwork wood carving, and Suresh and Devender Garg are clearly masters of all of them. Such talent, what skills! This is one of those pieces where you continually ask yourself, How could they do this? Its a total delight and I am excited to have it in my home.
