Description of the artwork «"Ganesha"»

"Ganesha", canvas / oil, 120x100 cm. 2017

Ganesha is the Indian god of wealth and abundance, the son of Shiva.
He is considered the patron of entrepreneurship, crafts and business, any business and spiritual undertakings.
The farewell of Ganesha before the trip will give him full of impressions and ensure safety, because Ganesha is designed to remove obstacles from the path of those who need it and reward material goods for righteousness.
It helps travelers and those who seek knowledge.

Most often, this deity is depicted with a huge belly and the head of an elephant, on which a tusk and trunk are located.
Ganesha’s hands are usually four, but there are more.
God seems like a round fat man of an unappealing appearance.
But, despite the apparent external flaws, Ganesha has a kind and fair heart.

People from all over the world come to him,
hoping for his favor and an inquiring mind.
Ganesha is called an elephant that fulfills desires.
Sri Ganesha is depicted in the company of a mouse (a former demon), which, according to legend, he pacified and made his horse.
The demon mouse symbolizes fuss and bold intentions.
Thus, Ganesha eradicates false vanity, excessive pride, selfishness and insolence.

In every part of the body of Ganesha there is a secret meaning:
the head of an elephant symbolizes manifestations of devotion and prudence;
big ears speak of wisdom and the ability to listen to all who make requests to the deity;
a tusk is an indicator of power and ability to overcome dualism;
the curved trunk symbolizes the high intellectual abilities of Ganesha;
the big belly demonstrates the special generosity of the deity, his desire to save the universe from suffering.
