Lord Ganesh is the most popular deity of the Indian pantheon. He is worshipped by hundreds of millions of Hindus all over the world as supreme remover of obstacles and bringer of good fortune.
Ganesha’s job is to smoothen the path in this troublesome world, thereby helping His devotees achieve their goals, and perfect happiness too.
Tradition has it that Ganesh is very smart and always ‘with it’. That’s why in this day and age He prefers to read the computer classic Visual Basic rather than some ancient religious tome.
The sculpture represents Ganesh in His Irish rebirth. It took 5 craftsmen one year to hand cut and polish this delightful work of art. The stone is black granite. It weighs about 2 tons.
