Description This stunning garden Ganesh statue is seated with his legs tucked under his body and his feet touching in the front. 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. 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
"In heaven Lord Ganesh will establish the predominance of gods, on earth that of people, in the nether world that of serpents and anti-gods"
~A Hymn from Sri Bhagavat-Tathva~

The chubby, gentle, wise, elephant-headed Ganesh, or Ganesha, is one of Hinduisms most popular deities. He is the remover of obstacles, the deity whom worshippers first acknowledge when they visit a temple. He is also patron of letters and of learning; he is the legendary scribe who, using his broken tusk, which he often holds, wrote down parts of the Mahabharata epic. Ganesh is usually depicted colored red; he is pot bellied, has one tusk broken, and has four arms that may hold a pasam, a goad, and a pot of rice or sweetmeats. The sweet meats are held in a type of bowl known as a laddus. His appetite for these sweets is legendary and offerings of them are often left at his shrine.

Statues of Ganesh can be found in most Indian towns. His image is placed where new houses are to be built; he is honored at the start of a journey or business venture, and poets traditionally invoke him at the start of a book.

A pasam is a triple twine weapon. Each of the three twines represents, arrogance and conceit, Maya - the illusory nature of the real world, ignorance. In Hindu ideology weapons are a viewed as symbolic tools to destroy the ego rather than to cause any type of bloodshed. 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.
