Antique Khmer Style Standing Bayon Four Headed Dvija Ganesha Statue - 81cm/32"
Measures (Height) 81cm/32"
Antique Khmer style bronze Dvija Ganesha or Dvija Ganapati in 13th century Bayon style.
In this depiction Ganesha has four heads, facing North, South, East and West. The word âDvijaâ means born twice. It reminds us the story of Lord Shiva beheading Ganesha and resurrecting Him with an elephantâs head.
As per Upanayana, Dvija Ganapati is considered equivalent to Lord Brahma. He is represented with four heads and in his hands holds conch shells, elephants and Ganesha. Ganesha is the elephant headed son of Shiva.
Similar to Krishna Ganesha celebrates life through it's pleasures and beauty. The direction of Ganesha's trunk has symbolic meaning. Here the trunk turns to Ganesha's right. This signifies the direction for success in the world. It is a position associated with grihastas, or householders.
In his early forms in India, Ganesha was associated with fertility. 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.
One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of Ganesha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.
