Ganesha, is one of the most revered deities in sanatana dharma. He is the ruler and the remover of all obstacles and also is the bestower of knowledge (Buddhipriya in Sanskrit). Hence Lord Ganesha is prayed before starting any new journey in life. This sculpture in its grandeur depicts the lord in a sitting position with his trunk turned towards left. The trunk turning left symbolizes moon and the cool power of ida nadi in our psychic body. This also signifies that lord blesses the devotees with the access to the fruit of their work in the material world. The laddu (sweet ball) indicates all material comfort.
The representation of Lord Ganesha with his trunk turned to the right is considered to be a form of Siddhi Vinayaka. As Gunina, he is the Lord of all virtues and protector of the realms. Only those with the highest level of spiritual accomplishment, it is said, are blessed to have a vision of Ganesha with his trunk turned to the right. This artwork would be the perfect idol for a temple or a religious establishment where it can receive the love and care it deserves. The sandstone sculpture can be customised to suit your needs.
Note: In all its grandeur this can be custom made i.e., hand crafted exclusively for you in a size of your choice to suit your needs.
Suggested Placement: In your living room or puja room.
