    Measures (Height) 37cm/15"

    An antique Chola style bronze standing Ganesha holding an umbrella. While holding an umbrella, Ganesh is known as bridegroom Ganesh or Mappilai Ganapathi.

    In the rich tapestry of Hindu mythology and iconography, Lord Ganesha, the beloved elephant-headed deity, occupies a central place as the remover of obstacles and the bestower of wisdom and prosperity. Among the various forms of Ganesha, Mappillai Ganapathi holds a special significance, representing a unique aspect of the deity's multifaceted personality.

    Mappillai Ganapathi, also known as "The Bridegroom Ganesha," is a form of Lord Ganesha that is depicted as a handsome and youthful deity adorned in resplendent bridal attire. In this form, Ganesha is often depicted wearing a silk dhoti, a garland of flowers, and other traditional bridal ornaments. He may also be accompanied by a consort, typically the goddess Siddhi, representing spiritual attainment and fulfillment.

    Behind the head of Ganasha can be seen fire rimmed aureole, confirming his divinity. 

    Mappillai Ganapathi represents a unique and revered aspect of Lord Ganesha, embodying the symbolism of marriage, prosperity, vitality, and divine blessings. Devotees of Mappillai Ganapathi seek his grace and blessings to overcome obstacles, attain success, and experience spiritual fulfillment.

    Through devotional practices, rituals, and festivals, devotees express their reverence and gratitude to the deity, seeking to deepen their connection with the divine and experience the transformative power of Mappillai Ganapathi's grace in their lives.

    The distinctive patina of the piece is particularly delightful. Ganesha is the elephant headed son of Shiva. Ganesh carries an umbrella and water vessel both associated with Hindu marriages.

    Later he became widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles, patron of arts and sciences and the deity of intellect and wisdom.

    Behind Ganesha can be seen an aureole or 'circle of light'. This represents his divinity. 

    His umbrella is loose mounted and can be removed. 

    One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of Ganesha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.
