Turquoise Resin Buddha Statue

4.5" H x 3" Wide x 2" Deep

This is a charming statue of Ganesh in turquoise resin. Ganesh is playing the flute with his Mooshika by his feet.

Ganesha is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, and Bangladesh and worshipped by many faiths.

Although he is known for many attributes, 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 varying 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 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. The twisting of the trunk symbolizes the sound of Om.

His mount a rat named Mooshika representing sagacity sits eating at his feet.
