  • Ganesh (also known as Ganesha, Ganesa, Pillaiyar, Ganapati, and Vinayaka) is one of the most recognized of Hindu dieties. He is easily identified by his elephant head.

  • In addition to being worshipped by Hindus, Ganesh is also revered by many Jains and Buddhists.

  • Ganesh is known as the Remover of Obstacles, and regarded as the Lord of Beginnings and the Lord of Obstacles. He is considered a patron of the arts and sciences, and the deva (diety) of intellect and wisdom.

  • Ganesh is very commonly depicted in Indian art, but may be shown performing many different activities.

  • Ganesh is said to be the son of Shiva and Parvati.

  • Although Ganesh is always shown with an elephant head, there are many different stories and myths about how he got it. In some stories, he is born with an elephant head, but in other stories, he acquires it.

    • In one common story, Ganesh was created from clay by Parvati to protect her, but Shiva beheaded him when he came between Shiva and Parvati. Subsequently, Shiva replaced Ganesh's original head with an elephant head.

    • In another story, Ganesh was created from Shiva's laughter, but Shiva gave him the head of an elephant and a protruding belly so as not to be too alluring.

Here are some statues of Lord Ganesh:

Product Description:
This is a Top Collection statue of Ganesh - the Hindu God of Success and Remover of Obstacles. Ganesh is the God of all beginnings. He's an all-powerful, all-encompassing deity; yet, his appeal to millions lies in his everydayness. He'll help you get through that tough situation and he'll see that you reach your destination safely. He'll also hear your prayers for the success of just about any enterprise. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. The broken tusk that Ganesh holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. And he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse. Ganesh is the most beloved and worshipped of all gods in the Hindu pantheon. Measuring 25 inches (a little over 2 feet) tall, this statue is superbly detailed and displays exquisite craftsmanship. All details in this amazing statue are painstakingly hand carved by master sculptors. The special production process of this piece, originating from Great Britain, uses actual bronze powder mixed in the cold cast resin to ensure a richer, more life-like presentation. The hand-painted accents further add to the depth and dimension of this piece. This process gives the product a high-quality antique look without sacrificing the details. Packed with molded Styrofoam in its own beautiful gift-box, it is ready as a present for any occasion and ideal present for enthusiasts of Hindu culture and traditions.
