    Description

    Ganesha, the Lord of the Divine forces, and the Lord of letters and learning, the solver of problems, and the remover of obstacles, is beautifully portrayed with a large pot belly, representing his ability to hold all energy, the good, the bad, the past, present, and future within himself.  He is shown here dancing with one tusk, thought to have been removed so that he could use it as a pen to write the Vedic epic Mahabharata.   He displays four hands, one holding a mango, one holding a noose (strangling the impurities of illusion and ignorance), and one holding a goad (representing his role as a teacher and guide for our spiritual path).
    To Ganesha's left is his vehicle Mooshika who is nibbling a crumb while looking up to his lord.  Below him also stand 2 "ganas", representing the Divine Forces, and the entirety of creation that Ganesha rules.  Above him is a rich canopy of vegetation with 2 peacocks and 2 monkeys.  Ganesh is painted in the rich and vibrant colors of South India often seen on their elaborate gopuram structures in their temples.  The gopurams are painted in vibrant colors which mirror the vibrant life of south India.

    About Ganesh

    Care

    "The use of a wood polish will keep the wood looking fresh and the colors vibrant."

    Wood statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved.  All the wood used by Lotus Sculpure's artists is dried out for months.  Moisture causes cracks in the sculpture as the wood contracts and expands in different temperatures.  Our wood has little to no moisture in it assuring that the sculpture is not going to crack in its journey into different climates.  Here are some simple tips to keep your statue in good condition:

    • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
    • To make the statue shine use a natural wood cleaner and a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
    We prefer Old English to polish and buff our statues.  The use of a wood polish like Old English will keep the wood looking fresh and keep the colors looking vibrant.  For natural wood and painted wooden statues we recommend Old English for lighter woods.  For darker wood statues we recommend Old English for darker woods.  Lotus Sculpture cleans and polishes each  wooden statue prior to shipping them to the customer.

    We recommend keeping wooden statues in an indoor environment.  Wood statues can go outside however, they will wear more quickly and develop an antique appearance.  If you would like to put a wood statue from Lotus Sculpture outside and keep the same appearance of the sculpture we would recommend first coating the statue with a couple of layers of sealant or polyurethane.  We would then recommend placing the statue in a partially covered area.  The more exposure to the elements the more the statue will wear over time.   Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding your wooden statue from Lotus Sculpture, (760) 994-4455 or info@lotussculpture.com.
