India second half of the 20th century
patinated bronze statue representing the elephant-head Ganesh god.
This last dancer has four arms, carrying a distinct element:
- the axe (parashu) classical Shiva weapon, destroys desire and relations, therefore suppressing agitation and grief.
- The flowing bow (pasha) that serves to capture the mistake.
- the elephant sting (ankusha) symbol of its mastery over the world
- The 'mâlâ', a garland or a rosary containing 50 elements, the 50 letters of the Sanskrit alphabet.
One can also find a mouse on Ganesh foot, that here represents its 'vâhana' or vehicle.
Due to holidays, all orders paid for between 9th and 23rd October will be shipped from 25th October. Thank you for your understanding.
