This statue of Ganesh is holding in his right hand a piece of one of his tusks. Legend holds Ganesh broke off one of his tusks to use as a pen in order 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 to remind you to retain what’s good and throw away the bad in order to overcome all forms of duality.
