This ornament positions Ganesh on a diya stand. Lord Ganesha is the very first son of Lord Shiva and Divine Mother Parvati. His parentage is excellent. The merging of human and elephant represents the sublime being Lord Ganesha, renowned for his spirituality and wisdom. Ganesha’s superior intellect fosters an innate awareness of life. Ganesha also reflects pleasure; his wide mouth is prepared to take in all of the joys and pleasures of the world but when tempered with understanding and moderation, one does not descend into sin. Ganesha also promotes listening to others and awareness. Ganesha gathers various instruments within his hands; an axe, a Laddus tray, a lotus and the final hand is poised in a blessing position. Ganesha embodies both emotion and reason. Both are required if man is to resist earthly passions. This exquisite carving should be placed in the home during Diwali to bring prosperity, auspicious beginnings and the blending of emotion with reason to create a harmonious home.
