    Antique Javanese style bronze dancing Ganesha from Indonesia.

    In the rich tapestry of Hindu mythology and iconography, Lord Ganesha stands as one of the most beloved and revered deities. Often depicted in various forms and poses, one of the most intriguing representations of Ganesha is when he is depicted playing the flute.

    This imagery holds profound symbolism and deep spiritual significance, offering insights into the multifaceted nature of this divine being.

    Here, Ganesh can be seen playing the flute. The flute holds a special place in Hindu mythology and spiritual symbolism. It is often associated with Lord Krishna, the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu, who is depicted as a divine cowherd playing melodious tunes on his flute. Krishna's flute playing is said to enchant the hearts of devotees and symbolize divine love and transcendental bliss.

    When Ganesha is depicted playing the flute, it merges the symbolism of the flute with the unique qualities and attributes of Ganesha himself.

    The flute represents harmony and balance, as the melodious music produced by its notes resonates with the rhythm of the universe. When Ganesha plays the flute, it signifies his role in maintaining cosmic order and balance. Just as the notes of the flute come together to create a harmonious melody, Ganesha orchestrates the elements of life to ensure equilibrium and stability.

    The sound of the flute is often associated with joy, celebration, and festivity. When Ganesha plays the flute, it evokes a sense of joyousness and jubilation among his devotees. His music uplifts the spirits, dispels sorrows, and fills hearts with happiness and contentment. Ganesha's flute playing reminds us to embrace life with a joyful heart and to celebrate the divine essence present in every moment.

    Here, Ganesha stands on a circular lotus flower base. The lotus flower represents purity, compassion and the giving of great joy to all. 

    A halo can be seen behind his head, in the form of a Mandala. This confirms his divinity. 

    Ganesha's love of life is one that he shares with Krishna. This joy is shown here by Ganesha playing a musical instrument, the flute. 

    Here Ganesha is also shown holding an axe. Whilst an elephant-headed deity wielding an axe may inspire images of a belligerent warhead, rest assured these items represent something far more encouraging. Instead, these instruments are rooted in metaphor and promote the idea that we should cut away the obstacles before us. In destroying our vices and obstacles, be they certain hurdles in our lives or more abstract feelings such as jealousy and anger, we can source new beginnings and cultivate a new approach to the things that have been worrying us.

    In his remaining hand he holds his mirror.  He holds his broken tusk in one hand and a bowl of sweetmeats in another hand.

    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. 

    The imagery of Ganesha playing the flute encapsulates a wealth of symbolism and spiritual depth. It reflects the multifaceted nature of Ganesha as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences, and the embodiment of divine wisdom and creativity. 

    Through his flute playing, Ganesha beckons us to embark on a journey of self-discovery, creativity, and spiritual evolution. May the divine melodies of Ganesha's flute guide us towards harmony, joy, and transcendence on our path through life. 

    The distinctive patina of the piece is particularly delightful.

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