This cute figure of the elephant headed god Ganesha represents him in his dance posture, though his fast dance moves do not obstruct him from enjoying his 'modakas' which he goes on eating in simultaneity with his dance. The rhythmic curves of his figure, his upper left hand with 'pasha' in it floating like a sash into air, queer pot-like belly, knotted knees, rounded ankles and flags like unfurling ears make the entire figure quite curious and interesting. His rounded belly is unable to contain both, his girdle and his loin cloth, one of which has ascended far above his belly and the other descended far below his waist. Effortlessly he seems to be dancing, yet there reflects in his twinkling eyes the toil which his comfort-loving being has to undergo during the course of dancing.

All his four hands, despite that in three of them he is carrying his attributes, 'ankusha', 'pasha' and a bowl filled with 'modakas', are devoted to dance.Dance in Indian thought and tradition has been devised as an instrument of creation and destruction and for giving expression to various 'bhavas' through various 'mudrayen', or dancing postures, positions, gestures and facial demeanours. In Indian mythology Shiva, Vishnu as Krishna, Devi as Kali and Ganesha are the master dancers who may dance to both create and destroy and to express one 'bhava' or the other. In this dance form the great Master is expressing by each of his four hands one 'bhava'. The upper left arm floating in air expresses the joy, usually born of victory. The lower left arm upholds the pot of 'modakas' and thereby symbolises sustenance. The upper right arm stands for a 'bhava' mixed of 'abhaya' and 'varada' and the lower right for easeful calm.

The sublime figure of the god has his large sash unfurling to ground and therein the artist has discovered the means for supporting his figure. The two ends of his sash also constitute the semi-fire-arch for enshrining the deity. On his right a huge container filled with 'modakas' and on his left his vehicle mouse support the fire-arch. With one tusk broken the god is in his 'Ekatanta' form. He has been adorned with usual ornaments and 'yajnapavita' and has been installed on a pedestal laid over a lotus flower drawn in its conventional form. As if for a dancer's performance, the platform has been considerably raised. In the wrinkles on the trunk of the deity the artist has inscribed a modest 'Om' and on his forehead a 'tripunda' mark. In the natural texture of wood the artist has discovered an as appropriate natural skin and body-hair colour and texture for the elephant god.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
