Very Large Decorative Statue of the Hindu God Ganesha.
Brought to The Netherlands from the Kerala region in the early 1990's by a Indian Diplomat.
And has remained in The Hague.
Ganesha is the son of Shiva and Parvati, and he is the brother of Karthikeya (or Subrahmanya), the god of war. He was created by his mother using earth which she moulded into the shape of a boy. As Shiva was away on his meditative wanderings, Parvati set her new son as guard while she bathed.
A Ganesh statue of these proportions is not common, and would make a great center/alter piece in any interior or Yoga Studio/Restaurant/Hotel.
The statue has most likely been used in a religious context for many years and has wear according to it's past function, which only adds to it's current character.
Statue can be viewed/picked up in The Hague, The Netherlands.
or (international) transport can be discussed/arranged.
