Vintage Brass Hindu Diety Lord Ganesha Sitting On A Brass Throne

This beautiful sculpture of Ganesha sitting on a brass throne with an intricately designed Prabhavali ( temple frame ) at the back with a yali, is handcrafted by artisans from the South of India using processes of brass casting dating back centuries. 

Ganesh (also spelled Ganesa or Ganesha and known as Ganapati, Vinayaka and Pillaiyar) is the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success.     He is the Lord of Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles of both material and spiritual kinds.

Wearing a crown, Ganesh holds a noose, elephant goad and a ball of sweets with his front right hand holding his broken tusk that he used to write the Mahabharata epic. His large, ruffled ears have a pair of earrings through them.  On the base of his trunk is a trident design in honor of his father, Shiva. 

Around his large belly is a cobra belt used to hold his enormous girth as he sits on a raised throne with his vehicle Mooshika next to him playing a drum. 

Such  Ganesha sculptures kept in the house are meant to drive away the Darkness from the house and this world and invite good fortune for the entire family.
