  • A modern portrayal of Ganesh in an abstract form with Ganesha's face and runk consisting of simple curved lines with the body of Ganesh being left in a rough cut which contrasts beautifully with the polished sheen of Ganesha's head and base
  • Ganesh does not have any eyes, which is perfect for Hindus who would want a Ganesha for the garden as puja would not be a necessary duty for a statue lacking eyes
  • The abstract Ganesha statue is carved from one block of stunning Kashmiri white granite which is a white granite with specks of marron in it and the sculpture is completely one of a kind. The stone is extremely dense and heavy and perfect in any weather in extreme hot or cold

The artist, Balan, has always blended styles from classic iconic Hindu statuary together.  A term he coined to me as "Masala" taken after the combination of Indian spices in cooking.  He came to me in 2015 with the idea to use India's wealth of stunning colored granites to create abstract modern Ganesha statues with them for the garden.  When highly polished, Indian granites have an unbelievable sheen that showcases the awesome amount of energy and unusual colors held within the stones.  Balan is an amazing artist who is always pushing the boundries of his art in new ways.  By supporting Balan you are breathing life into the arts in Tamil Nadu and supporting Balan and his family.

This modern portrayal of Ganesh is abundant with polished, smooth, curved lines. It lacks the typical details of Ganesh like jewelry and facial features. It lets the polished smooth surfaces of the stone do the speaking for the sculpture. The unpolished portions of the statue contrast beautifully with the bright polished sheen. Ganesh does not have any eyes which is perfect for Hindus who do not want to perform daily puja for the statue. Ganesh is perfectly acceptable to be in the garden as well.

I always say to our customers; The sculpture chooses you, you do not choose the sculpture.
You just know when you find the right piece to bring into your home and into your heart.

"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.

USA Shipping

This sculpture is in our Oceanside, California gallery and ready for immediate packing & shipping. Packing takes anywhere from 1-4 business days. Shipping takes anywhere from 1-6 business days. The shipping price is automatically calculated from Oceanside, California to the destination in the online checkout. Or you can get a shipping quote by clicking the Calculate Shipping link beneath the Add to Cart button. Shipping will be calculated based on the weight of the sculpture and the distance to the destination from our Oceanside, California showroom.
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
