Vintage Brass Ornate Peacock Throne Of Lord Ganesha, L 24 cm x W 8 cm x Ht 15 cm
Magnificent brass throne or singhasan of Lord Ganesha - God of wisdom handcrafted with 6 peacocks and Ganesha's vahan/ Vehicle - The Mouse by skilled artisans from South India.
The throne is ornately crafted with twin peacocks on either side giving it it's grace and beauty and is enhanced by the intricate and fine detailing of the idol and the Mouse at the edge of the singhasan.
Lord Ganesha with the mouse as his vehicle as per hindu mythology is able to go into nooks and corners of the world and carry out his mission as the Destroyer of Obstacles and one who can pass through tiny holes and narrow pathways, even in the darkness of night. This gives the quality of all-pervasiveness to Ganesha.
The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the epic Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman.
Ganesha, the God of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth.
