Lord Ganesha Kalamkari Painting by Sudheer
Symbolically, Ganesha’s large head is a depiction of wisdom and intellect. His eyes are small but penetrating, seeing the spirit of the divine in every living creature. An elephant’s trunk has a unique capacity of performing heavy and subtle tasks. This acts as a symbolism of Ganesha’s intellect penetrating into the realms of the material and spiritual worlds. Peacefully digesting all the good and bad in life, Ganesh’s belly symbolises the ability to digest all that life has to offer- good, bad, ugly, evil, pain, suffering or happiness. Lord Ganesha’s stomach is a treasure of Vedic knowledge. He has large ears, to listen to the supplications of everyone but like the winnowing basket are capable of sifting what is good for the supplicant from what is not. He is always seated in Padmasana (lotus posture).he leg indicates that one aspect of his personality is dealing with the world (materialistic world) while the other is rooted in the single pointed concentration upon the supreme reality (spiritual world). This is an Oriental themed painting as the subject matter originated from Hindu mythology.
