    Description

    This stunning garden Ganesh statue is seated with his legs tucked under his body and his feet almost touching in the front.  He wears brocade leggings for pants.  He holds an ax, a noose and his broken tusk that he used to write the Mahabharata epic.  His trunk is sipping water from a water vessel in his left hand.  He is seated on a double lotus base.  Ganesh wears a crown with a skull on his head perhaps in homage to his father, Shiva the Hindu God of destruction.  His trunk is long and large and is the main feature of the sculpture.  Ganesh has a cobra brahmin's thread across his chest.  A brahmin's thread is a thread of rope that the brahmin caste in India wears to denote their status so they can perform rituals within the temple.  The cobra's head is twisted where it ends to the left of Ganesha's face.  The most unique feature of this beautiful Ganesh is the amazing carving of Mahakala or "great time" on the backside of Ganesha's halo.  Mahakala is known as the devourer because in the end time destroys everything.  Truly a wonderful Ganesh perfect for bringing the obstacle removing energy of Ganesh into any outdoor setting!

    About Lava Stone:  The lava stone used for our sculptures was quarried in the volcanic mountains of Indonesia.  The lava stone is a solid stone that is perfect for any type of location and weather conditions, hot or cold, wet or dry. The stone is versatile in that it can be colored in a wide spectrum of colors.  It can also be polished or unpolished giving giving it a clean or rough feel.  In humid conditions if it is left untouched it takes on a very mysterious, antique, worn look like you would see in the temple ruins of south east Asia. 

    About Ganesh

    Care

    Lava stone statues from Bali do not need much maintenance.  The best way to maintain the statue is to simply dust the piece periodically to keep any dirt from accumulating.  They can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. 

    "You can use soap, warm water and a cotton cloth to periodically
    go over the statue to remove any dust or dirt buildup.
    "

    Soap and warm water is the best way to maintain the statue.  You can use a small brush to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. 

    Lava stone's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate.  The stone can stand up to the harshest conditions of heat and bitter cold.  We suggest you bathe the sculpture at least once a year so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture.  This will maintain the sculpture for your grandchildren and then their grandchildren!
