The throne He is sitting on is a gigantic lotus bloom. It opens up its petals for Lord Ganesha to sit on, each petal given a realistic curve of the body as well as serrations. His legs are gathered in lalitasana, the traditional stance of Hindoo deities. At His feet lies the mouse, His cosmic vahana (mount), making an offering of a laddoo in all humility. Indeed, the laddoo is an integral aspect of the presence of Lord Ganesha - part of His childlike persona is an unflinching love of this Indian sweetmeat. Note the gigantic modaka He cradles in the palm of His left anterior hand. While the remaining hands bear sacred implements and mete out blessings, the Lord curls up the tip of His trunk over the laddoo in this one, making as if to put it most lovingly in His mouth.
Finally, a graciously crowned head, flanked by majestic elephantine ears. From the ears and the trunk to the limbs and torso of the Lord, the glamour of gold ornaments sets off the solid halo behind His head.
