This Ganesh figurine features one of the best known and beloved deities in the Hindu culture. Ganesh is the lord of prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles from both the material and spiritual worlds, although he has been known to place obstacles in the paths of those who need to slow down or stopped. The elephant head on this Ganesh figurine denotes wisdom and the trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. The broken tusk Ganesh holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. And he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse.
The Ganesh statue for sale measures 5 1/2" in height and 4" in width.
