  • 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:

Ebros 34" Tall Large Hindu God Nritya Ganesha Chaturthi Sitting On Fire Throne with Giant Mouse Vahana Statue Ganapati Elephant Deity Patron of Success and Arts Hinduism Vastu Altar Decorative
  • Manufacturer: Ebros Gift
  • Brand: Ebros Gift
Physical Description:
  • Weight: 26.0 Pounds
  • Color: Multi-colored
Features:
  • This Ganesha Sitting On Fire Throne With Giant Mouse Statue is made of designer composite polystone resin, hand painted and polished. Polystone which is composed of polyurethane, resin, and mixed with powdered stone additives that give it added weight and a porcelain or "stone-like" feel. Polystone is very durable and delivers a cleaner, more substantial representation of an original sculpture than other common materials.
  • This Ganesha Sitting On Fire Throne With Mouse Statue measures 34" tall, 19" wide and 11.25" deep approximately. He weighs about 26 pounds. If you decide to place the statue outdoors, please ensure that you apply a clear UV coat spray that you can purchase at your local hardware stores. This will prevent discoloration of the sculpture.
  • Measuring almost 3 feet, the Ganesh statue shows the Supreme God Ganapati seated on a throne with a giant vahana rat. The rat represents greed and our base instincts. Ganesh, the God of wisdom, helps control all the urges that the rat represents. Ganesha holds an axe, trident and modaka bowl in his hands. A ring of fire around his head represents enlightenment.
  • Ganesha is believed to attract more wealth, happiness and prosperity in a home. Ganesha Idol should be placed in the east or the west directions of the house. Northeast corner of the house is the best location to set up your Ganesha idol. Never place Ganesha facing South nor attached to the walls of toilets or inside the toilets nor bedrooms. Placing Ganesha in your garden, home entrances and patios also invites blessings to your home, as long as he does not face South.
  • Soda can and props placed next to the statue is not included with the listing. They meant to provide size perspective of the item.
