This representation of Ganesh is a real gem of a wood carving. Observe the details and the fineness of the work !
Major god of the hindu religion, Ganesh is the son of Shiva. The legend tells that one day, while he was returning from a long and tiring battle, Shiva did not recognize Ganesh, his own son, on his way home. In a gesture of anger, Shiva cut off the head of his son with a single blow of the sword. But, seeing his wife Parvati in tears, Shiva realized quickly that he had made a huge mistake ! So he sent his army to look for a spare head for his sons and said to them, "Take the head of the first being that you'll come across on your way"...
