Wood-Carved Panel Of Instrument-Wielding Ganesha Figurines

As the favorite son of Shiva-Parvati, Lord Ganesha is widely revered as the adorable baala-deva (boy-deity) of the Hindu pantheon. As the son of the wrathful Shiva, He is often depicted as a warrior, a multi-limbed and multi-headed one at that. Next to His sisters, Devi Sarasvati and especially Devi Lakshmi, He is portrayed as this calm, gathered deity to whom anyone in distress may turn for succor. As such, the musical aspect of Lord Ganesha is little known and an unusual theme for artisans to work with.
