Ganesh on his Rat
Chola Bronzecraft, Tamilnadu

Rs. 12,080.00

Ganesh holds in his hands a noose, an elephant goad, his broken tusk that he used to write the Mahabharata epic and a mango. He is seated on a large rat.  Ganesh is usually shown in sculpture accompanied by or riding a rat.  Since rats are seen as being capable of gnawing their way through most things, the rat symbolizes Ganesh's ability to destroy every obstacle. His two feet are up towards his body in a relaxed seated position of a baby.

This Ganesh is a hand made bronze sculpture cast by the artists of South India using the lost wax process, a skill passed on for generations since the Chola period.
