Kalyan Joshi paints this Phad painting of the eight Ganesha avatars or Ashtavinyak forms of Ganesha, which are recorded in the Mugdala Purana. In order to destroy the inner demons of humanity, Lord Ganesha is claimed to have assumed eight various forms. These forms include Kaam, Krodh, Mad, Lobh, Matsar, Moh, Ahankara, and Agyana. The eight different incarnations of the deity in the Mugdala Purana express complex philosophical concepts of the creation of the world. The first incarnation is the Vakratunda or Twisting Trunk which mounts a Lion, then comes the Ekdanta or "Single Tusk" which is an embodiment of the essential nature of Brahman. The third incarnation is the Mahodar or "Big Belly" which is a synthesis of both Vakratunda and Ekadanta, then comes the Ganjana or "Elephant Face" which is a counterpart to Mahodar. The fifth incarnation is the Lambodar or "Pendulous Belly" which corresponds to Shakti- the pure power of Brahman, then comes the Vikata or "The Unusual Form" which corresponds to Suryaa embodying the illuminating nature of Brahman and it mounts the peacock. The seventh incarnation is Vighnaraja or "King of Obstacles" which corresponds to Vishnu mounting the celestial serpent Shesha and embodies the preserving nature of Brahman. The last incarnation is the Dhumravarna or "Grey Coloured" which corresponds to Shiva and embodies the destructive nature of Brahman.
