This is a Panchamukthi Vinayaka or five headed statue of Lord Ganesh, the elephant headed God of Wisdom and Success. He is believed to oversee auspicious beginnings and can remove obstacles. His elephant head is a symbol of his immense wisdom. This statue of one of the most popular deities in Hinduism is made in India of wood. In this statue, Ganesh is seen sitting on a lotus flower base. Because Ganesh is the God of Overcoming Obstacles, he brings his rodent companion with him. That way, if he comes up against a wall that he can't knock down or scale, then his bandicoot can slip through the cracks or burry underneath. Working together, they are successful one way or another.

The five heads of this statue signify Ganesha's ability to look for all possibilities for success. Four of the heads look in the four directions, while the fifth head looks inward toward the soul. Also, in Indian mythology, the number five is important. This is sometimes attributed to the fact that there are fives senses for humans (sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell).

Ganesh is one of the sons of Siva / Shiva, who is believed to be king of the snakes. Hence in this statue, Ganesha has a serpent around his torso. It is believed he broke off the right tusk and used it to inscribe the Mahabarata, one of the major Hindu religious works.

As the God of Success, his image is to be worshipped before any other gods during Hindu rituals. Many devotees will say a little prayer to Ganesha before beginning even the smallest tasks, such as writing a letter to a friend or starting a bus or train trip.

The painting scheme is adopted from the bright colors used in south Indian temples.  The temples are known for their large gopurams or towers that rise up into the sky decorated with various gods and goddesses.  The gopurams are painted in vibrant colors which mirror the vibrant life of south India.

The delivery charges include insurance, a residential lift gate delivery to your home or business. The freight company will call you to schedule a delivery day and time frame to make the delivery. Someone must be present to receive the statue. Depending on where you are located we will use either R&L Carriers, UPS Freight, Estes, DHX or Roadrunner Transport.
The freight company will use a lift gate to bring the sculpture to the ground and then use a pallet jack to move it anywhere on the same level. They will move it anywhere in your driveway or in your garage. They will not take it to your backyard or in the elevator to your apartment or up or down any steps. They will not be unpacking the statue and taking the crate away. Think of them as you would UPS or Fedex. They only deliver the statue. If you require a little extra service, (within reason) a tip to a delivery man usually works wonders!
For placing the statue our customers have either placed the statue themselves with help of a friend and a tool like a hand truck or a dolly. Or by contacting their landscaper who is used to moving large and heavy objects like rocks and trees into place. For much larger and heavier sculptures sometimes the customer needs a piece of heavy equipment for placing the statue like a crane or forklift. If you have any questions contact me directly at [email protected] or (760) 994-4455
