Ganesha by Holley Bakich

In the Hindu religion, Ganesha is worshipped as the lord of beginnings, the lord of obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, and the god of intellect and wisdom. He is the son of the gods Shiva and Parvati. Artists often depict him with one broken tusk, and he always has a big belly. Many of his representations show him holding a bowl of sweets in one of his arms.
