Lord Ganesh On Hard Board


Lord Ganesha is one of the most significant deities of Indian religion and culture. The son of Lord Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha is believed to be the remover of all obstacles and is prayed to before the beginning of any significant occasion. Ganesha sculptures are therefore extremely popular in India and abroad. He is a deity with the body of a man and the head of an elephant, a big belly, a broken tusk and a jovial nature. Ganesha is depicted with more than two arms, a mouse and a serpent.

Lord Ganesha is the God of Wisdom and Success, education, knowledge, literature and the fine arts. Worshipping him is the start of any religious or festive occasion. Most Indians always have Ganesha sculptures or small idols in their homes and offices in order to bring good luck, peace and prosperity.

Ganesha sculptures are available in brass, marble, clay and wood. Ganesha marble sculptures are made with polished looks that render a very refined beauty and sophistication.

Marble Ganesha sculptures are immensely popular. Marble sculpting in exotic art work came down to India from the European countries such as Italy, Rome, Paris, England and so on in the late eighteenth century. Marble sculpting in India started with the intricate carvings of religious deities such as Ganesha. One can get innumerable Ganesha sculptures in white marble in Jaipur.

Bronze Ganesha sculptures are equally popular as bronze is a metal that is used for crafting sculptures, weapons and house-hold items. While bronze has been in use for more than 5000 years, it was first used in Iran, Iraq and Turkey during the 3,500 BC. Bronze is a favored material for sculpting and there are several types of Ganesha sculptures in different postures.

Wooden Ganesha sculptures are also very popular. Wood carvings on doors of temples, intricate designs on ceilings with various postures of Lord Ganesha are a common sight. Most Indian handicrafts stores sell Ganesha sculptures in wood which are very popular.

Stone Ganesha sculptures are an ancient tradition in India where rough natural stone are shaped by the controlled removal of the stone. While in Karnataka, exquisite Ganesha sculptures are made in black stone with detailed work with very fine engraved work in grayish-blackish work. In Tamil Nadu, granite Ganesha sculptures are very popular. There are softer stones that are used making Ganesha sculptures. The jali-work in stone is an age-old art form in Rajasthan that is an intricate work. Ganesha sculptures are also made with semi-precious stones.

So buy a Ganesha sculpture of your choice and bring in prosperity and happiness into your lives.
