Beautiful Ganesha figurine made of concrete.
Ganesha (also called Ganesh, Ganapati Tantra, Ekadanta or Vinayaka) in the pantheon of Hinduism is the deva with the elephant head.
He is the god of knowledge and wisdom, removes obstacles and is the patron saint of travelers.
His vahana, vehicle, is a mouse or rat named Mashika. Hindus pray to Ganesha before starting anything new, such as a new job or when moving. Ganesha is the son of the god Shiva and the goddess Parvati, who actually together in the cosmogony of Hinduism symbolize the unity of everything.
Thereby Shiva represents the subjective conscious and Parvati the energetic material.
A statue of him often stands at road junctions in India, so that he can help travelers when they have to make a choice and take a new path. Ganesha is always at the beginning of something, a first impulse.
