A dhoti of silk, and bejewelled shringar on the rest of His body. He is chaturbhujadhari, the one possessed of (‘dhari’) four (‘chatur’) arms (‘bhuja’), and has the body of a plump boy-child. Sculpted from homegrown wood of the tropics, this murti is characterised by symmetry of form and superb iconographic detail. From the folds of His attire to the elements of His adornment, each aspect of the composition has been defined by the infusion of colour and curvature. Their superb execution is a hallmark of superior workmanship.
The most statement-making aspect of this murti is the pedestal on which Lord Ganesha is seated. It is almost half the height of the work and features multiple tiers, each engraved more intricately than the other. Lotus petals of varying shapes and colours as well as simplistic geometric curves. A round floral motif over the midline and the presence of the vahana to the left of the figure, complete the picture.
