Description

Lord Ganesh is standing on a beautifully carved lotus flower bud (padma) which sits above a lily pad covered ocean.  He has four arms, one holds an axe which symbolizes the severing of unhealthy attachments, another holds a noose or rope for removing obstacles, his front right hand is in the abhaya mudra, the gesture of fearlessness also called the gesture of renunciation and his front left hand holds a small bowl containing sweets (rewards of a wise life).

Ganesha's trunk is pointed to the right which represents bliss and tranquility.

At his feet are two rats (his vehicle), a toad (symbolizing longevity, strength and wisdom) and several (nagas) snakes.  The snakes represent human emotions, such as fear and pride, which we mush learn to subdue.

Ganesh is carved out of a solid piece of crocodile wood, only a master carver is able to produce a piece with such fine, delicate details!

This Ganesh statue is entirely hand carved by the talented wood artisans of Bali, Indonesia and is undoubtedly one of a kind.
