A beautiful cast bronze Ganesha statue with carved detailing. The Ganesha has oversize, stylised ears to indicate he listens to all prayers. His right palm indicates blessings and also has an Om symbol on the palm. All aspects of the body have beautiful patterned detail. Repeating patterns curve around the base and body. Statues such as this are cast from a mold of an original carving. This mold then has liquid metal poured into it.
This statue also makes a beautiful addition to a Yoga or meditation room. Keeping spiritual statues elevates the energy of a space and creates a wonderful atmosphere. Deity statues are common in homes in Asia. Many people leave offerings to their household shrines. People also often adorn the areas around the statues with flowers and lights. This is a wonderful idea even in a western home.
Ganesha is a very popular patron deity and the most widely recognisable of the Hindu pantheon. Ganesha is an elephant God and son of the Goddess Parvati. He is the God of success, new beginnings and overcoming obstacles. He is also the God of wisdom and the intellect. You will find his likeness in workplaces and schools. He is often depicted with a small mouse which represents devotion. This mouse will also sometimes represent doubts and vices. This mouse is also Ganesha’s mount that he rides.
Symbolism of Ganesha’s Body Parts: Elephants are the pathfinders of the animal kingdom. Like an elephant, his large body clears a path for others to follow, in a spiritual sense. Ganesha has large ears to hear all the prayers of his devotees. His tusks represent two aspects of the human being. These are wisdom and emotion. The right tusk represents wisdom and the left, emotion. The left tusk is broken, implying that one must let wisdom master emotion. His round belly represents the wholeness of the universe and encompasses all spiritual realms.
