Lot 329.Chaturbhuja Dancing Ganesha with Arched-Shaped Vegetative Aureole
Painted in the most alluring and vibrant colors, this wooden carved Ganesha performs his soulful dance with the left leg placed on the mouse (his sacred vehicle) and right held in air as a gesture of him swinging in ecstasy. The brown-yellow shining plumage accentuates Ganesha’s divine aura and brightness; garbed in complementing colorful attires and jewels along with the tri-colored South Indian style carved crown. _x000D_Ganesha’s divineness and elegance is one of a kind, as can also be revered by the sober expressions on his face having high browed eyes, sun tattooed elephant ears, white and red Shaivite tilak and a realistic striated trunk that curls from below. Chaturbhuja holds an axe, noose, his favourite fruit, mango and a broken tusk symbolizing his love and devotion for his work. The long kamarband below the navel of this fat belly is beautifully sculpted in the shape of lotus petals. _x000D_The light grey shaded mouse is saddled in blue check and gold border with a beaded gold jewel tied around his neck. The posture of his head portrays him as paying obeisance to his Lord and stands on a unique trapezium shaped pedestal along with the large lush green vegetative arch formed like an aureole. _x000D_Zoom in to applaud the sculptor’s decent play of colors on the arch, filled with beauteous cuts and paints of green floral vines filled with bunches of sweet mangoes and long tail parrots and monkeys can be seen frolicking from one branch to another. That initial glance of this large statue attracts the customer to purchase it.
