Ganesha from Nepal

A four-armed Ganesha, sitting on a throne. In his lower hands a part of his broken tusk and laddhus (sweets), in the upper hands a book and a fruit.

Around his neck and his upper arms three snakes.

A belt around his waist and bangles on the legs.

The throne is nicely decorated.

Ganesh, (also spelled Ganesha, Ganesa and known as Ganapati), the son of Shiva and Parvati, is the Lord of good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of beginnings and the remover of obstacles of both material and spiritual kinds.

Very fine work.
