Lord Ganesha is one of the most affable and benevolent gods in Hinduism and is worshipped at the beginning of any function. The beautiful image of the Lord of Wisdom is nicely carved out of brass with some sparkling carvings. He is shown with five heads and ten hands and the Lord is seated on a lotus. The gravity and gracefulness of the image is manifest. Lord Ganesha is the son of Shiva and Parvati.
