The son of Shiva and Pavarti, Ganesha, the elephant headed god, is one of the most powerful, peaceful, and wisest of all the Indian gods. With his large elephant ears to hear all, his trunk symbolizing strength, and his large head representing wisdom, he is worshipped as the god of prosperity, fortune, and success. The mouse, Ganesha's faithful companion, represents overcoming selfishness and gazes up at him as the supreme destroyer of evil and obstacles. Crowned with a jeweled headdress, this exquisite rendition of Ganesha placed indoors will help create a peaceful, spiritual space.

Commemorate births, anniversaries, weddings, or even celebrate diwali, the festival of lights, with our peace, meditative sculpture. 9½"Wx7½"Dx8"H. 2 lbs.
