Lot 013 – Ganesha

350,00

bronze
South India,18th century

 

Ganesha has the head of an elephant and a big belly.
Sitting on a throne, beside his left knee a rat.
This statue has four arms, which is common in depictions of Ganesha. He holds his own broken tusk in his lower-right hand and holds a delicacy, which he samples with his trunk, in his lower-left hand. The motif of Ganesha turning his trunk sharply to his left to taste a sweet in his lower-left hand is a particularly archaic feature. Ganesha holds an axe in the upper right arm and a pasha in the other upper left arm.
