A panel of music-making Ganeshas to add to the auspiciousness of your home or office. A square-shaped wood-carved wall-hanging, divided into three rows of three Ganesha figures each. It makes for a total of nine miniature Ganeshas, each housed through His own temple entrance with a miniscule Kirtimukham at the zenith. In addition, they are separated by an ornate pillar. Both architectural features draw heavily from the ancient South Indian temple aesthetic.
Each Ganesha is seated on the floor with the legs gathered around the pot-belly like a child. A variety of musical instruments in the hands of them all. The one at the centre, however, is seated in lalitasana on a gigantic lotus-throne. In fact, He is the only one possessed of four arms (chaturbhujadhari), while the remaining eight are possessed of two arms (dvibhujadhari).
Elements of traditional temple architecture fill the spaces between each Ganesha enclosure. The spaces along the two vertical edges of the composite panel are occupied by a pair of mythical creatures resembling a lion and a peacock.
