A rare vintage Chariot or "Rath" of Lord Ganesha handcrafted in pure brass driven by The Mouse - Ganesha's Vehicle as per Hindu Mythology.
Crafted by skilled artisans from the South of India, this magnificent chariot on 4 wheels displays grace and beauty with a Hamsa sitting on the edge of the chariot enhanced by the intricate hand engravings on the Mouse and fine detailing on the chariot and sculpture of Lord Ganesh.
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.
