Ganesha statue - Brass, 6 cm, 120 g
Ganesha is perhaps the most popular of all Indian gods. He is considered the son of Parvati and Shiva. According to legend, Shiva withdrew to meditation and Parvati created a son from loneliness. When Shiva returned, he cut off his head in anger. After realizing what he had done, he ordered the head of the first who came to sit on Ganesha's body to revive him. This was an elephant - a new god was born who united the power of Shiva and Parvati.
It is said that he removes all obstacles. He is often called before any kind of undertaking. He ensures material and spiritual prosperity and is therefore considered the patron saint of business people. But even with every new start, be it a move or a new job, Ganesha must not be missing, as he blesses the new situation and promises happiness.
Ganesha has four arms. They represent the four aspects of the subtle body: mind, ego, spirit and consciousness.
