18th century Indian bronze votive sculpture of Ganesha sitting on a square base supported by short feet, usual attributes in his hands, his vehicle - a rat - crouching in front of him as it eats a fruit, cast in the Indian state of Karnataka. Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, and thus is invoked before any new undertaking. He bestows good luck on his worshippers, and is invoked in marriage ceremonies and in some forms of Tantric worship. Bold heavy casting with good sense of volume, beautiful warm patina and beautiful wear from worshipping, wonderful feel of age. Height 1 3/4 inches.
