19th century small votive Indian bronze sculpture of Ganesha sitting on a square base. 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. This Ganesha has his trunk turned to the left, and it is strongly advisable for worshippers to keep left sided Ganesha statue at home. They are believed to be representing Ida Nadi (lunar energy) with its moonlike nature and feminine energy with a cooling effect. Great quality casting for such a small object, beautiful devotional wear and warm patina. Wonderful feel of age. Height 1 3/8 inches.
