Khmer Multi-Armed Dancing Ganesha Statue, Temple Relic. Description: A superb bronze casted example of Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity from Hindu mythology, son of Shiva and Parvati, known as the 'Remover of Obstacles', and god of success and fortune. In Indian mythology, Ganesha is the God of the universal popularity among Hindu's and portrayed as an idol with the body of a man and the head of an elephant, having only one tusk. Ganesha's head is symbolic of the wisdom of the elephant and represents man's eternal striving towards intergration with nature. The deity is intricately modeled in traditional Khmer style, depicted dancing percariously on a double lotus base, with four-arms holding attributes, the upper right hand holds the Ankusha (goad), and the upper left holds the Pasha (noose). The lower right holds his own broken Tusk, while the lower left holds a ball of Rice Flour, Ganesh's snake coiled about his torso. He is shown unclothed above the waist, exposing his large pot belly practically falling over his garment, wearing a knee-length Sampot, secured by a plain belt tied around his waist. xxxx Ganesha's well proportioned head is beautifully rendered with a slight tilt, almond shaped eyes, broken tusks, trunk carved in the round, whorled holding an attribute, and large ears resting on his shoulders. He wears tightly matted braided hair bound by a conical-shaped headdress, and topped by a bulbous ornament. xxxx The deity dances on an elaborate round plinth, decorated with a double row of lotus petals, while a rat supports his right foot. xxxx In addition to being a hallmark example of Cambodian artistry and achievement, a mixture of metals were use to give form to this Hindu and Buddhist divinity figure, which consisted primarily of Copper(90%) and Tin(10%), obtained from the smelting of sacred metals and religious artifact fragments, along with several holy minerals added in completing the purity of the metal. xxxx In preparation, prior to the actual manufacturing - magic letters and drawings are created according to ancient holy scriptures, established by master Buddhist Monks; along with extensive ceremonial prayer, practiced by the gathering of several temple monks, by which is said to enhance the power of the statue with invincible and psychic powers.
