Ganesh on Horse Jajarkot Nepal
From western Nepal around the hill town of Jajarkot originated many of these primitive bronze figures. They were associated with the practice of shamanism and were largely donated to temples where shamans exercised as much influence as priests.

While he lacks the definition or the hefty size of most portraits of Ganesh, the trunk is unmistakable, so we have the incongruous idea of an elephant riding a horse.

The figure stands 6-1/2 inches high and is 6-1/2 inches long.
