Ganesha terra cotta sculpture. Hand painted terra cotta Ganapati curio, mantle piece. Home Decor idea with an Indian, ethnic touch. Artikrti
Terra Cotta Ganesha curio/ornament, hand painted, from India.
Vinayaka OR Ganesha OR Ganapati, the elephant trunk sporting God in Indian mythology is believed to be the God of Wisdom and the Remover of Obstacles or the God of Success. Hence he is symbolic of all good things that we want to happen in our lives.
Terra cotta is clay, fired to create mostly, humankind's early vessels. India's early evidence of terra cotta is from the Indus Valley Civilization over 2000 years back. While terra cotta is mostly utility, like the clay pot for Indian cooking or decorative, like in the decorative pottery kind terra cotta, early 20th century saw terra cotta being used for toys and other decor items.
This work of art done out of terra Cotta is a modern rendition in hand painted glory of Ganesha or Buddinath as he is also known. Buddhinath means God of Wisdom. Bring home this Ganesha or gift it to a friend for wisdom or for just the touch of contemporary ethnic touch to the decor.
Spread that aura of "enlightenment" & "ethnic chic".
