Description

This is a traditional vigraham (statue) of Lord Ganesha created in Bronze in Chola style.

Cholas were one of the South India dynasties that ruled the longest. Earliest inscriptions that refer to this dynasty are from 3rd Century. They ruled till 13th Century and were at their height of power around 9th century.

Cholas were great patrons of art and developed a sculpturing system complete with style, iconography and technique.

So when we look at this vigraham of Ganesha, we are looking at art-style and technique that is about 1700 years old.

Ganesha is the son of Parvati and Shiva. He is worshipped as Vighneshwara – Lord of Obstacles, for he has the power to remove and create obstacles in any undertaking. He is worshipped at commencement of any auspicious undertaking, particularly ceremonial or any literary work before other deity.

He came to acquire an elephant head as a result of a series of events and is therefore known as Gajanana (one with elephant face).

This four-armed sculpture is traditional form of Ganesha. He holds Ankusha (goad) in his upper right hand and Paasha (noose) in upper left. He holds his own broken tusk in his lower right hand and carries a Modaka (Indian sweet) - of which he is very fond - in his lower left.

Ganesha is endowed with long, huge belly and small legs. It is believed that his belly contains all the eggs of untold Universes.

The sculpture is beautified with a traditional Prabhawali (background arch around deities) complete with Kirtimukha (a demon who Shiva blessed with a position higher than any deity after he consumed his own body when asked so by Shiva) on top.

This is a beautiful statue fit to install at house entrance, temple or any visually accessible spot and it is sure to bring beauty, grace and positivity.

A lovely bronze statue, this will gradually darken and acquire various shades as it ages. If not polished; patina will form over it and it shall finally change to the much desired, classic antique-look.
