This marvelous 24 inch granite statue truly demonstrates the playful image the Hindu god Ganesh embodies. His playful posture with one handover his head dancing is a fantastic rendition of "the remover of obstacles". 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. 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 back of the figure is particularly striking. 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. Particular detail is given to the fabric on the waistline as well as the skirt leading between the massive figure's meaty thighs.
About Black Granite: Indian black granite is a wonderful stone. It is capable of a variety of finishes which can give it a variety of different color possibilities. It is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone. Indian black granite is among the best granite in the world sought after by artists globally. Unlike inferior quality granite, Indian granite is extremely dense and without impurities that plague other stones. The density of granite makes a granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.
