About The Book
The life and legends of the god Ganesh in your hand, accompanied by a glorious gallery of historical imagery and art, including paintings by the renowned Indian artist, Indra Sharma.
Son of the Hindu deities Shiva and Parvati, Ganesh is the elephant-headed deity known most often as a remover (and sometimes creator) of obstacles. Worshipped in Hindi faith at the outset of new meetings and ventures, Ganesh is seen as a figure of prosperity and protection. This publication in the mini book scale collects traditionally styled Indian artwork by Indra Sharma and others, and a selection of writings on the history and philosophy of this deity to inspire thoughts and worship for followers of the deity, and fascinating insights for anyone interested in world religions in general.
• Features the elephant-headed god’s origin tale, as well as other teaching stories, inspirational quotes, and a guide to understanding the symbols found in ancient and contemporary depictions of the deity.
• A wide range of artwork including gorgeous original pieces from noted painters Indra Sharma, Mahaveer Swami, B. G. Sharma, and others
• Also includes high-quality reproductions of ancient artworks, and images of traditional sculptures and temples dedicated to Ganesh.
