Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as the Lord of Beginnings and the Lord of Obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as the Patron of Letters during writing sessions.
Lord Ganesh is widely worshiped as the supreme Hindu deity. His image is found throughout India and Nepal where everything auspicious starts with invoking his name. A popular figure in Indian art, paintings of Lord Ganesh are created by Indian artists in a variety of forms, mediums and styles. Representations show wide variations and distinct patterns changing over time.
Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him particularly easy to identify.
"There is a significance of the Lord Ganesh form. It attracts me to express my love towards Lord Ganesh through my paintings. I have rendered Lord Ganesh forms in bold & bright different colours like Acrylic, Water colours, inks etc and used Mixed Media to create beautiful layouts & designs to bring out my imagination."
