Majestic brass Ganesha oil lamp on 2 levels with his Vahans - the 3 mice, surrounded by three large diyas / oil lamps standing 38 cm tall hand crafted by skilled artisans from the South of India.

Lord Ganesha, also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India, Srilanka, Thailand and Nepal worshipped by all Hindu sects regardless of affiliations. 

Widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the Deva of intellect and wisdom, Ganesha is the god of beginnings and is honoured and considered most auspicious at the start of all rituals and ceremonies.

The 3 Mice at the feet of the Indian God represent Lord Ganesha"s vahan or vehicle. As per Hindu Mythology , in ancient times, when agriculture was the primary mode of sustenance, rodents were one of the biggest obstacles to prosperity as they would destroy standing crops, eat up stored grains and thereby result in severe losses for the common man.

Lord Ganesha, in having a mouse/rat as his vehicle, is symbolically shown to have conquered this pest, thus staying true to his name of Vighnaharta.

Though traditionally an integral part of a prayer room, this magnificent Ganesha oil lamp may be placed in any area of your home as a religious decor and lit daily to bring in prosperity, good health and wisdom.
