The smoothness, glow and superfine carvings of this Ganesha sculpture underscores its uniqueness and justifies it being a handpicked article from the best of the collections. The initial glance to this sculpture focuses our attention towards the realistic précised chisels of each and every feature; perched in lalitasana on a full blooming lotus plinth having its petals carved in a distinctive pattern of vertical lines approaching to meet at the top; loaded in an alluring and precious temple jewellery beautifying his neck, hands, ears and trunk.
Sculptor’s professional skills and the laborious time taken to complete it can be identified by the clearly fashioned minute briefings of Ganesha’s hands, legs, intense expression of his eyes and the dhoti creased at the bottom with a charming wavy border. Lifelike striated trunk is postured in a Edampuri pose holding his favourite sweetmeat laddoo that he carries in his left hand; right palm has an om symbol carved and holds his half broken tusk symbolizing his nature of dedication and assertiveness to complete any task; rear hands hold a pasa and noose respectively, carved in an ethnic flamboyance.
The flappy ears portray their own symbolic identity. The beautiful haloed crown that dignifies his head is scored in an exquisite manner with multiple layers designed in varied patterns and small peacock feather broch to highlight it all.
