Ganesha also spelled Ganesh and also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka, and Pillaiyar, is one of the best-known and most widely worshipped deity by the Hindus. His image is found throughout India and Nepal. Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles. For more, read here.
Because of his special appearance, every artist will carve out, paint or draw a Ganesha in their own style. I think most of the artists will agree with me when I say that Ganesha is the most flexible diety when it comes to an artists imagination.
I have one such Brass Ganesha Idol that I recently added to my collection. This is a very contemporary style ganesha and can add instant touch and gilded look to a contemporary setting. While the body of this Ganesha has a brass finish, the rest of it has a lovely blue-green oxidised effect. I bought this at the recently held cottage mela in Safina Plaza, Bangalore.
