Antique Nepalese bronze deity, age patina with bright areas of gleaming bronze and mineral accumulations in green. Depicting a four armed Ganesh standing upon a lotus base. Ganesh is the bestower of knowledge, an amalgam of qualities of power and gentleness, simplicity and intelligence, gravity and humor. He is greatly beloved, and answers the prayers of his devotees without fail. He is fond of sweets and holds a sweet cake in his left front hand, symbolizing the precious nectar of enlightenment. In the two hands behind him he holds a pasha (noose) to recall the binding nature of worldly attachment, and an axe to cut through the net of ignorance in order to see things as they really are. His pot belly signifies the bounty of nature, and also tells that Ganesh swallows the sorrows of the universe. His large ears hear all, sifting the real and the unreal, retaining only that which is undefiled.

Ganesh rests his right foot upon his vehicle, a mouse, again demonstrating that reality is a contrast of appearances and contains all forms of power, “for the wise do not find anything in the world disproportionate or ugly. The all-encompassing soul is the mouse that lives in the hole called Intellect...hiding itself behind the inscrutable shape of illusion.”
