Our faux ivory statue of the reclining Ganesh is rich in intricate details. This statue is a direct contrast to our statue of Reading Ganesh who is close to an abstract image. They are examples of the fact that Ganesh’s imagery is not static, and Ma’s India works hard to provide you with a plethora of choices.
Here Ganesh is holding in his right hand a piece of one of his tusks. He broke it off in order to use it as a pen to write the Mahabharata which he holds in his left hand for humanity. The tusk is a symbol of Ganesh’s sacrifice. Another interpretation for the broken tusk is that you are advised to retain what’s good and throw away the bad in order to overcome all forms of duality. You can see why Ganesh is often called the Hindu God of Scholarship.
