Ganesha – Cosmic Dance
Lord Ganesha, the Hindu elephant God, not only signifies an auspicious beginning and good fortune, but also holds a wealth of meaning.
If you look closely, you will see the big ears and large head, a product of wisdom gained from listening and reading. The trunk and fingers curved into the shape of Aum, the universal sound that is essential to meditation. The belly and body depicting Mount Kailash – Home of his father Lord Shiva, with a line of elephants struggling to go uphill, symbolising the hardship of today’s material world. In his right hand Lord Ganesha holds the ankusha (tool used to guide) with the Natraja avatar of Lord Shiva dancing. This painting reinforces how powerful they both are.
