Ganesha, the elephant-headed son of Shiva and Parvati, is the Huindu god of learning and wisdom. In addition, Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, consulted before any undertaking, and the bringer of good fortune. This elegant little bronze from the medieval period depicts the god standing, flanked by two attendants. It must have been a powerful token indeed, for successive centuries of rubbing for luck have worn away the face of Ganesha and his servants. This abrasion, the work of countless hands, only adds to the statue's charm. Since so many have had faith in its powers for so long, it cannot help but carry an aura of benevolent magic. Whoever possesses it today is certain to be both fortunate and wise. - (PF.1382)
