  • Antique Thai Style Enthroned Bronze Seated Ganesha Statue - 6.5cm/3"

    Measures - (Height) 6.5cm/3"

    An antique Thai style bronze enthroned seated Ganesha. The distinctive azurite and malachite patina of the piece is particularly delightful.

    Here Ganesha is seated on an ornate throne. The piece is made from two separate but interlocking parts. 

    Ganesha is the elephant headed son of Shiva.

    In his hand Ganesha holds laddus, the name for Indian sweetmeats. Whilst some may interpret this as Ganesha simply having a sweet tooth or a (relatable) penchant for candy, it is no surprise that the sweet delicacies carry further meaning. These tasty treats represent the reward for a wisely-led life and the eternal sweetness that comes from a fulfilled experience. Dentists around the world will be delighted to hear that Ganesha is never depicted actually eating the sweetmeats, but this item of the deity does also show his parallels with everyday human life. This relates to Ganesha’s status as a Vedic God, which means he does not forget even those who are not his devotees and instead looks out for everyone. This is communicated through his depiction as always looking upwards or at eye-level, as he is surveying all human life and is therefore not solely focussed on those praying to him.

    The direction of Ganesha's trunk has symbolic meaning. Here the trunk turns to Ganesha's left. 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.

    Either side of Ganesha are two Naga serpents providing protection.

Today I've received Your angkor stele. It's quite splendid. Thank you very much for your mindful and fast shipping. I hope a chanse will come again.

Miki, Osaka, Japan

Just a quick note to let you know your package arrived in fine shape a while ago. (DHL, your shipper, is a very good shipping service; even though I wound up being home when the delivery was made, I was glad to have been able to pre-arrange my electronic signature/authorization to leave the package on my porch, should I not have been home to receive it; that option is a very nice one as it saves the recipient from having to wait around all day, in order to sign for a delivery. I very much like the bronze bust. The coloring is particularly appealing. I've placed it on a bookcase just inside the front entry...it looks great!!!. Very handsome piece. Thanks again for having shipped so quickly, for packing the bust so carefully and for your helpful statuses throughout the transaction process. You are so very good to do business with.
