Ganesh in the garden

Over the weekend I went to a nearby garden nursery to look for a more appropriate pot for the Boston fern that sits on my bedside table. At the nursery, I saw this statue of Ganesh that has a lovely image of him—calm and peaceful.  After work today I went back to the nursery and snatched him up.  I’m trying to find a good spot for him in front of our house. This is how he looked after I found a pedestal for him. It’s a work in progress. He is only 17″ tall and I’ll be working on propping him up a bit higher and making his surroundings more lush and colorful.  Ganesh is most probably one of the more loved gods in India. He is the remover of obstacles and the god of wealth.  To see his image is always a reminder to me of the benevolence of people and nature.

      Hi Deepika,

      I bought it at a local nursery. It’s in Berkeley–Westbrae Nursery. Good luck!
