Ganesha - the Elephant-headed Lord of Beginnings
One of the most often depicted gods of the Hindu pantheon, Ganesh is worshiped by most Hindus and a few Buddhists, Jains, and others that find his image irresistible, and the powers he represents necessary in their lives (blessing new ventures, and overcoming obstacles, among them).
Worship of Ganesh
A lovely Rajasthani painting of Lord Ganesh seated on a throne being fanned by royal ladies with yak-tailed fly whisps. Acquired in Jaipur, this little piece is hand painted on paper, unmounted, 6-1/8" x 9" (inner: 5-1/4" x 7-5/8")

Lord Ganesh stands proudly with four weapons in his four arms. Royally clad and crowned with embossed gold work, Ganesh is worshipped by his adoring mouse. Acquired in Himachel Pradesh, India, I was told it is in Kangra style (named for the nearby Kangra valley). It had some negligible damage when I got it (tape marks on corners, a glue-like substance dried on the left border), and since then it has gained a couple pressure marks also on the left side, which might be fixed by rubbing from the back, but since it is currently sealed with cardboard backing, we've left it alone. For those reasons we have reduced the price from $85 to $50 with shipping. Hand painted on paper, unframed, 6-1/8" x 9" (inner: 5-1/4" x 7-5/8")
