This pattachitra or painting on canvas using natural colors depict Ganesha the destroyer of obstacles and Lakshmi , the goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity (both material and spiritual) together. Most hindus consider it auspicious to worship goddess Lakshmi and lord Ganesha on the day of Diwali as it is considered that Goddess Lakshmi isits every house and blesses all with wealth.
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.
Meditation is nothing but the art of centering the mind. In today's times, it is definitely an art, seeing as so many distractions surround us each step of the way. This is why ancient ascetics recommended that we focus on one object, be it the 'aum' sound, our breath, a source of light or even an idol. As the remover of obstacles, Lord Ganesha is an important motif in meditation. Chanting his name offers a sense of peace, while also allowing us to maintain our meditative practice. As the Lord of meditation, he reigns supreme in this Arecanut Leaf painting. These delicate paintings are a testament to the artist's skill and patience in creating a masterpiece on seemingly everyday objects.
