A baby Ganesha sculpture is a representation of growth and fruitful opportunities; he is a child’s god that enhances good manners and good health to his devotees. The sculpture shown on this page is Lord Ganesha’s relaxing posture; he has his left hand leaned on the round booster such that it holds the weight of his entire body in the most comfortable posture and right hand is held high in air holding the Mooshakraj (Ganesha’s vahana, mouse). Bala Ganapati is often described to be golden in color representing the bright future prospects just as the one shown here. The child-like smile on his elephant headed face and trunk folded upwards in play-way highlights his act of playing and talking with the mouse. This baby Ganesha sculpture captivates the viewer’s hearts by its sweet and innocent face expressions and gestures.
The most attractive part is his colorful robes; garbed in an inlayed turquoise colored half sleeve angarakha having a unique triangular neck design with orange beads and similar on sleeves along with a complementing white dhoti. All of his garbs are decorated with colorful reconstituted stones in interconnected flower patterns and a same kind can be observed in the designing of the booster and his large flappy ears. Have a careful look at the posture of his legs- left one is half hiding behind the other and right is folded up with the foot peeping out from its decorated hem.
