Description A beautiful, rustic Ganesh sculpture perfect for any garden.  Moss still clings to his stone body much like it would in the humid temples of Asia.   He has 4 arms that hold his broken tusk that he used to write the Mahabharata epic, an ax, elephant goad and a bowl.   There are many skulls in this sculpture which pay homage to his father, Shiva the destroyer.  He wears a brahmin's thread that made of a garland of skulls that goes across his chest.  A brahimn's thread is white string that brahims wear in temples that shows that they are indeed brahmins and can perform all the puja rituals with the temple.  Skulls also adorn the base of the sculpture.   There is also one skull on Ganesha's crown.  Ganesh is wearing brocade robes that have circular carvings all around it.  The back side of the sculpture is magnificient!  A large Mahakala with his beady eyes, large teeth and his tongue hanging out is beautifully rendered in bas-relief.  Mahakala is known as the devourer or "great time because in the end, time devours everything. 
This garden Ganesha is hand carved by the lava stone artists of Bali and is completely one of a kind.

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.   

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!

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.
