                Pewter Singing Bowl 6.5" Diameter

3.5" High x 6.5" Diameter   1lb 6oz      Note E

The center design is of Ganesha. Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles both material and spiritual, the patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honored at the start of rites and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as a patron of letters and learning during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits. While some texts say that Ganesha was born with an elephant head, he acquires the head later in most stories. The most recurrent motif in these stories is that Ganesha was created by Parvati using clay to protect her and Shiva beheaded him when Ganesha came between Shiva and Parvati. Shiva then replaced Ganesha's original head with that of an elephant. Details of the battle and where the replacement head came from vary from source to source. Another story says that Ganesha was created directly by Shiva's laughter. Because Shiva considered Ganesha too alluring, he gave him the head of an elephant and a protruding belly. Here he is in a sitting pose, Lalita Asama with his foot on a lotus pedestal called Padmasana. His four arms hold the pot of precious gems, the Pa or battle ax symbolizing his severance of worldly attachments, the red lotus, and an Om sign. His trunk is facing Left, Vamamukhi or North facing signifying purity, prosperity, peaceful blissful family bonding and happiness.
