GANESHA


The present lot depicts Ganesha, the lord of wisdom and the remover of all obstacles, who is perhaps the most revered deity in India. Sculptural representations of Ganesha are seen from the 5th century onwards, from various regions of India. The style, proportion and ornamentation varies from dynasty to dynasty. Ganesha is shown standing here, with his two upper arms branching out to hold a noose and a conch respectively. His long trunk dips into his cupped lower hand, while his other lower hand bears his broken tusk.
