The god of good beginnings, Ganesha is believed to bring luck and prosperity to the home and he comes with wealth as well as knowledge and peace. Lord Ganesha is one of the most sacred gods of Hindus and is worshipped across state borders. He is known as the remover of obstacles. He is a patron of the arts and the sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. In the entire pantheon of Hindu gods and goddesses, Lord Ganesha is the one who is worshipped before starting anything new.
In this avatar, he brings along the positive energy to remove all obstacles and dance through the problems and challenges in life. As he is often portrayed, in this painting, Lord Ganesha is wearing yellow clothes, the color of knowledge and learning. It embodies contentment, tranquillity, meditation, adeptness, and mental development. His childlike prosperous body is adorned in celestial ornaments, inlaid with colorful beads and embossed in gold. His Vahan (vehicle) Mushak stands below his throne, beseeching and worshipping with an offering of butter from the pot of butter that lies in front of the image. The reverence of this scene is only furthered by the temple-like golden arches that frame it. This image is incredible in the way it depicts Lord Ganesha and the Tanjore style of paintings brings a certain sanctity to it all.
