SOLD Beautiful Brass Trimuhkthi Ganapathi 26"
- This form of Ganesha with three heads is called Trimuhkti Ganapati
- Ganesha's three heads are aspects of the Guna, of purity (sattva), activity (rajas) and lethargy (tamas)
- The craftsmanship of this statue is evident in the heavy weight of the sculpture and the fine details
- Ganesh is holding a variery of weapons with his 8 hands
- He ships the same day from our California gallery
The three heads of Trimukha Ganesh, or three faced Ganesh, depict the three states of being inherent in any manifestation, which are named the Guna. In his 8 hands he holds, a conch shell, double dorje, a sword, his broken tusk he used to write the Mahabharata epic, a trident, a fly whisk, an elephant goad, a ball of sweets and a cup holding rice that his trunk is playfully eating. Elephant goads (or elephant prods) are typically used to direct elephants. Goads are symbolic of how one should steer the soul away from the ignorance and illusions of this earthly world just as a mahout would steer an elephant away from any treacherous path.
The craftsmanship is evident in the solid weight of the piece and the attention to detail given to the ornaments on the base, Ganesha's dhoti he is wearing and his crown. A superb example of Ganesha!
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart. - Kyle Tortora, Founder of Lotus Sculpture
Brass statues from Bali, Indonesia 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. Bali brass is meant only to be used indoors.
If you are really interested in making the statue shine you can use some natural oil, like coconut oil or olive oil, and a cotton rag to wipe down the metal portions of the piece. You can use a toothbrush as well to get into the small crevices of the statue like the hands and hair. This will not remove any of the natural patina on the statue.
