ganesh art

Lord Ganesha: Patron of the Arts and Sciences, Remover of Obstacles.

His large ears remind you to listen, his broken tusk symbolizes sacrifice for a good cause, a modak (sweet dumpling) in his hand symbolizes the rewards of a peaceful life,  his large stomach peacefully digests both good and bad experiences, his axe cuts unhealthy attachments, and his rope will pull you closer towards your goals.
