Carved out of the finest kind of Bangai wood, a timber resistant to woodlouse and wood diseases used for artistic carving in the southern part of India since long, this brilliantly painted statue represent Lord Ganesha in his manifestation as Vijay Ganapati : the all-conquering great Lord. Unlike most of his forms in any of the contemporary mediums often experimenting with his image innovating ever new ones, this wood-carving seeks to represent the elephant god in one of his purest classical forms identified in the Mudgala Purana like early texts as Vijay Ganapati. Vijay Ganapati is one of his more often enumerated thirty-two manifestations. Abounding in exceptional beauty and great divine aura Vijay Ganapati is one of Lord Ganesha’s most powerful images accomplishing everything desired, helping overcome every evil and untoward situation and leading to success in all things and in every walk of life. Vijay Ganapati is hence also Vighnesha, remover of all obstacles who dispels all obstructive forces and defeats all evils, as also Ekadanta – one-tusked, the symbol of utmost sacrifice and single-mindedness.

Lustrous, red hued and abounding in great divine aura, Vijay Ganapati is perceived as a four-armed figure carrying in upper two the elephant goad and a noose, while in the normal right, his broken tusk, and in the normal left, a ripe golden mango which is his most loved fruit. In Vijay Ganapati iconography mouse is not a symbolic or formal motif or presence but his true mount he rides on. It is duly saddled. His figure is usually voluminous and pot-bellied believed to contain inexhaustible treasures of riches and oceans of knowledge that Vijay Ganapati greatly requires in accomplishing his objectives. Alike, he is conceived with a curved trunk endowed with strong grip. However, the Puranas do not specify his seating posture, nor whether his trunk shall be leftwards turned, or rightwards, that is, ‘edampuri’ or ‘valampuri’, the terms used in classical terminology for defining respectively the former and the latter.

This wood statue has been rendered in exact adherence to these classical norms of Vijay Ganapati iconography. As holding the voluminous figure of the elephant god on the figure of a tiny mouse is practically difficult, Vijay Ganapati images are rarely rendered as riding a mouse. However, astonishing and delightfully, the artist of this statue has mounted his image of Vijay Ganapati on the figure of the same tiny mouse, and a horse-like saddled mouse holds him perfectly well, normally and quite decently. As prescribed, Vijay Ganapati is carrying in his four hands goad, noose, broken tusk and a ripe golden mango. Rare in lustre and divine aura the figure has been painted in gold blended with red. Magenta, the colour of his ‘antariya’ and used in other parts for shading, attributes to this reddish gold body-colour further brilliance. The figure has been conceived with a large belly and curved edampuri trunk holding in it another mango and as seated on the back of the mouse in ‘utkut akasana’.
