The Cotton Cloth with Sequin Work depicts Goddess Maa Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth-prosperity in a beautiful manner. Golden coins are falling from the kalash. Two elephants are worshipping the deity. The Goddess is holding lotus flowers in her hands whereas the two other hands are also nicely crafted. The goddess is wearing a highly ornate headgear. One of the most popular and widely worshipped gods in Hinduism, Goddess Lakshmi is the wife of Lord Vishnu and worshipping her along with Lord Ganesha gives us the maximum benefits.
The beautiful Kalamkari painting depicts the Lord of Wisdom in his eight different forms. The Mudgala Purana, an ancient text on Lord Ganesha, cites eight forms of Ganesha, prevailing over eight human weaknesses or demons. Thus, Ekadanta is the Conquerer of Moda or arrogance. Dhumravarna (smoke colored) overcomes Abhimana, pride; Vakratunda (curved trunk) is the Vanquisher of Matsarya, jealousy; Mahodara (big belly) is Lord of Moha, infatuation; Gajanana (elephant face) conquers Lobha, greed; Lambodara (corpulent belly) overcomes Krodha, anger; Vikata (deformed) conquers Kama, lust; Vighnaraja (King of Obstacles) prevails over Mamata (egotism). So now we can see that our Loving Ganesha is "there" for even the lowest of the low, that there is hope for everyone, and that there really is "no intrinsic evil," only a seeming variation of the past containing all that has to be learned to live and grow from a young soul to an older one and then mature into rishi consciousness. He is "there for us." Yes, there is hope for all, and none are damned forever. It is our loving Ganesha who eventually introduces us to His brother, our Loving Murugan, the God Who sits upon the manipura chakra, center of willpower.
