Seated Hindu Deity Ganesha: Title: Antique. Extremely Rare. Seated Hindu Deity Ganesha. Terracotta Folk Art. 19/20th C. Overview: A stylistic representation of creative works, bearing the distinguishing hallmark of Folk Art, somewhat exaggerated in style, yet simplistic in its form. The sculpture was acquired from a temple precinct in central Thailand, measuring 7.5 inches (19.05cm) knee to knee, and 7.75 inches (19.69cm) in height. 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 integration with nature. Description: A masterfully conceived example of Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity from Hindu literature and mythology, son of Shiva and Parvati, known as the 'Remover of Obstacles', and god of success and fortune. xxxx The deity is modeled in traditional archaic style, depicted seated cross-legged in the Lotus or 'padmasana' pose. The figures right hand is rich in a symbol of gesture while simultaneously holding his own broken tusk, as the left hand holds the Conch shell. Across his left shoulder and about the waist is his sacred thread, the divine serpent ‘Upavita’, coiled in the form of a cobra snake. xxxx Ganesha is shown unclothed above the waist, dressed in typical royal attire, adorned in jeweled and floral ornamentation, wearing a knee-length 'Chawng Khun' wrap secured by a decorative belt, complemented by an elaborate frontal sash extended at the front of his garment. Ganesha's well-proportioned head is beautifully rendered with a slight tilt, wearing a floral headdress above an interconnected 'Diadem' crown. The image is further adorned throughout with elaborate armlets, bracelets and anklets, while the reverse is highly detailed showing the intricately carved lines of his garment.
