Eshanputra: Worshipping Lord Shiva

Named after the Dhokra Damar tribes of West Bengal, this traditional lost-wax casting technique originated over 4,000 years ago and remains in great demand with art lovers across the globe. Famed for its simplicity, enchanting motifs and forceful forms, Dhokra artefacts adorn the houses of true art connoisseurs across the world. The exquisite brasswork creation is characterized by it's intricate craftsmanship and attention to minute details.The sculpture pays tribute to the mischevous and fun loving, elephant headed God, Ganesha. However, in a departure from traditional depictions of Ganesha, this sculpture showcases Ganesha as praying and worshipping his own father, the third member of the Hindu holy Trinity, Lord Shiva, the destroyer. Ganesha's expression, perfectly captured, expresses the respect and devotion of not just a devotee, but also a child to a father and makes a perfect addition to your art collection.
