Ganesha, the epitome of wisdom, knowledge, and good fortune, is also the Vighnaharta( the remover of obstacles). The lord of Ganas is the child of Shiva and Parvati. As the phrase ‘Shri Ganesh’ (positive start) suggests, Ganesha is prayed to Ganesha before beginning a new chapter of life. Ganesha is beloved by all and is the first god one bows down to. The miraculous powers of lord Ganesha are beyond what the human mind can ever perceive.
In this larger than life stunning white marble sculpture of Ganesha, he is seen holding a Modak/laddu that indicates the sweet miracles Ganesha will bless his worshipers with, while on one hand, the lord is holding an axe that signifies wisdom or the strength to cut the chords of confusion and unclarity.

Ganesha can also be discerned holding a lotus flower that indicates realization to achieve ultimate consciousness. Finally, the mouse at the lord’s feet represents desire and reminds his devotees to never let their desires take over them and ride them but be driven by their desires to navigate towards their goals.
ABOUT HINDU GOD GANESHA
There is much to Lord Ganesha that charm the senses and the soul. Exotic India's lifelike Ganesha sculptures bring it out to perfection. The Hindu boy-god is widely adored for His innocence and His generosity with divine blessings. His childlike appeal lies primarily in His love of laddoos, a quintessential Indian sweetmeat, without which His iconography remains incomplete. He is usually portrayed as Chaturbhuja Ganesha (Sanskrit for 'four-armed'). In one hand He holds a miniature goad or a noose, a weapon He wields over the adharmi; in another His only tusk, with which He wrote the Mahabharata; in another He holds a pot of laddoos; while the palm of His final hand is turned erect and outward in the gesture of blessing.
Exotic India has a vast collection of not just the four-armed Ganesha, but also the sixteen-armed and the dancing Ganesha. There are many sides to His personality, each to bring out a different facet of the devotee's spiritual makeup. The son of Ma Durga, Ganeshaji is a ferocious warrior and boasts of invincible skill that conquers the adharmi. With Shiv ji His father, He breaks into a divine dance routine that becomes His child's limbs and demeanour. An important aspect of Ganesha ji is the trident mark on His forehead, indicative of His father in Whose iconography the trident is indispensable. In some portrayals, He sits with His plump form hunched up over the Mahabharata, the very picture of singular focus.
From exquisite, richly inlaid brass pieces to endemic South Indian bronzes, our Ganesha murtis come in diverse forms and sizes. Whether you need a resplendent murti for your altar or a small work of art for your website, Exotic India's painstakingly sourced collection will not disappoint you.
How to clean and maintain marble statues?
Marble has been a preferred material for sculptors and artists for more than a thousand years. It is a rock that undergoes metamorphism which causes recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. Marble comes in various colors, designs, and dimensions. Pure white marble is the most preferred type of marble for making sculptures and statues since time immemorial. White marble is especially used for sculpting stone monumental sculptures since ancient times. The natural shine and luster of the carbonate crystals of white marble give a lavish and beautiful appearance to the statue.
Marble stone statues are highly durable and can even withstand harsh weather conditions without getting corroded, therefore, they can be kept indoors or outdoors without getting damaged or weathered. Although these statues can last for many decades, their regular care and cleaning are essential to increase their longevity and beautiful appearance.
Marble statues need periodical cleaning to maintain their flawless look. However, harsh and deep cleaning can result in making the statue look dull. If your marble statue is withering away, it is recommended to take the help of a professional cleaner. Marble is a delicate material and therefore needs proper care.
