Lord Ganesha - the God of New Beginnings, Intellect, Wisdom and Auspiciousness.
Story of the Painting
This painting is a beautiful and very intricate illustration of Lord Ganapati in an auspicious posture of abhay mudra or 'the gesture of fearlessness'. This Pattachitra from Orissa shows the central image within a typical floral border as the outer frame. The elephant-headed Lord is shown with four arms and two tusks. The left broken tusk of Lord Ganesha symbolises the deep concept of 'non-duality' in Hinduism.
In one hand there is nagapasha, which denotes His power to bind and remove obstacles and thus He is also worshipped as the 'Vighnaharta'. There is a tray of sweetmeat or 'ladoos' in His other hand which bestows material prosperity to the devotees. The rat in the painting symbolises our human senses which always remain unsatisfied. So one should always strive to keep the senses and worldly desires in control in order to enjoy the grace of the Lord.
