This sculpture depicts a rarely seated form of Lord Ganesha on a low heighted stylishly carved pedestal; the boon giver modelled in an ancient distinctive cross-legged posture looks at the world by his high browed intense eyes to evacuate all the materialistic aspects using his sharp mind and his sacred implements- noose and goad, held in the rear hands.
The exclusive ankle length dhoti and tremendous rich jewels adorned over his portly figure symbolize him as being the supremely worshipped deity; the heavy trunk folds elegantly in an edampuri pose to eat modaka that he carries in the left anterior hand, while right stays in a gesture of abhaya mudra. The large circular Kirtimukha backdrop is outlined with heavenly carved petals of the lotus flower that compliments the lavish flower haloed crown that aptly glorifies him as the head of the order and a justifiable Vighnaharta.
Sculptor has very immensely carved the minute briefings like the beautifully tattooed ears that swing on sides, trident mark on the face as well as the serpent tied round his fat belly, remembering his patronage. You may also applaud the carver for the use of an ethnic and classic color palette that highlights Ganesha in a blend of various shades of golden.
