Teak Wood Carvings

Hand Carved Teak Wood Ganesha Elephant God

ID: wcewp800

Hand carved Teak Wood Ganesha Elephant God  Intricately hand carved and hand finished with details.

Measures 19" high, 10" wide, 8" deep.  Weighs approximately 20 lbs.

About Ganesha:  Worshipped as the God of good luck and creativity, Ganesha, the elephant-headed son of Shiva and Parvati, is one of the most popular gods of the Hindu pantheon.  The God's elephant head is the result of a quarrel between his parents.  The young God angered Shiva by refusing, at his mother's behest, to allow his father to observe Parvati bathing.  Shiva cut off ganesha's head in rage, but to soothe Parvati's grief, replaced it with the head of the first creature that passed by--which happened to be an elephant.

He is shown here with one hand in the abhaya pose of protection and refuge and the second holding a sweet (modaka) symbolic of the sweetness of the realized inner self. In the two hands behind him he often holds an ankusha (elephant goad) and a pasha (noose). The noose is to convey that worldly attachments and desires are a noose. The goad is to prod man to the path of righteousness and truth. With this goad Ganesha can both strike and repel obstacles.

According to the strict rules of Hindu iconography, Ganesha figures with only two hands are taboo. Hence, Ganesha figures are most commonly seen with four hands which signify their divinity

Variation in color and weight due to nature of the wood.
