The piece is made from solid black granite. Ganesh was brought to life by four sculptors and took 6 months to complete.
Attention to detail is given to every aspect of this fine figure. His face is particularly attractive. His long, bulbous trunk, two short tusks show and smooth smiling face display the character of Ganesh; carefree and loving. His eyes are particularly human in appearance. Like the entire piece, they are carved with care and ability.
You can always pick Ganesh out of a crowd; besides his elephant head, Ganesh typically is endowed with a handsome potbelly. In this case his belly is perfect for giving a hug. His rotund midsection is the summit for his curvaceous hips. The hips lead directly into a beautifully carved skirt, which he wears with the grandeur and ease of a King. The details of the folds of the skirt are striking. The rough style of carving directly contrasts the polish and smoothness of his large belly and upper body.
The entire piece is a lesson in proportion. Everything from the beautiful head, bulbous trunk, uplifted arm, slight chest, potbelly, huge thighs and chubby feet fit together without any imperfections. The back of the figure is particularly striking. All which makes the piece a masterpiece in the front is duplicated in the backside. Ganesh's head adorned with a turban overflowing with little tufts of hair onto his back just give the piece humanity. The flap of his ear delicately resting on his shoulder makes you second guess if the piece is really made out of stone or not. The backside gives you a great angle to see his chubby fingers. Particular detail is given to the fabric on the waistline as well as the skirt leading between the massive figure's meaty thighs.
