Ganesh, also called Ganapati, the elephant headed God of Wisdom and Success is the defender and remover of obstacles and has to be propitiated first before worshiping other Hindu Gods. He is one of the sons of Siva and Parvati and is the bestower of success in work and artistic endeavor. His mount or standard is a rat, a symbol in Hindu fable of the trickery of this world. So it is natural that the rat should first be conquered, then subdued and employed by any being who represents spiritual strength. Cast in durable cold-cast resin and elaborately finished in gold and rich jewel-tone colors. SCROLL DOWN FOR CHOICES, PRICES AND ORDERING.
