Vintage Brass Ganesh Dancing on Kalinga The Serpent - 19 cm Tall x 10 cm Wide

Exquisite hand crafted sculpture of Lord Ganesh dancing on the 5 headed poisonous serpent Kalinga and holding his tail as if he is as light as a feather.

Handcrafted with beautiful engraving with fine detail by skilled artisans using the centuries old Lost wax method of casting, this idol of the dancing Ganesha is seen holding his broken tusk that he used to write the Mahabharata epic, a bowl of laddoos (Indian sweets) which he is trying to eat with his trunk and an elephant goad.

Goads are symbolic of how one should steer the soul away from the ignorance and illusions of this earthly world just as a mahout would steer an elephant away from any treacherous path.

A small cobra wrapped around Ganesh's belt in the front.  A beautiful sculpture of a jubilant Ganesh!

As per Indian mythology, Ganesh dances lightly atop the poisonous serpent Kalinga who, in a tale involving Krishna, was poisoning the Yamuna river. 

Measures: Height 19 cm x Width 10 cm  . The pedestal measures 6 cm x 6 cm
