  • Ganesh Statue - Antique Khmer Style Bronze Seated Ganesha Statue - 22cm/9"

    Measures (Height) 22cm/9"

    Antique Khmer style bronze seated Ganesha.

    The distinctive patina of the piece is particularly delightful. Ganesha is the elephant headed son of Shiva. He holds his broken tusk in one hand and a bowl of sweetmeats in another hand.

    Ganesha is often found playing a musical instrument. 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. Lord Ganesha is known as the Conqueror of Obstacles (Vighnaharta).

    Historically, when agriculture was the primary mode of sustenance, rodents were one of the biggest obstacles to prosperity. Rodents would destroy standing crops, eat up stored grains and thereby result in severe losses for the common man. Lord Ganesha, in having a mouse as his vehicle, is symbolically shown to have conquered this pest, thus staying true to his name of Vighnaharta.

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