Ganesha, the elephant headed deity, is one of the most well-known and adored in Hindu culture. As the remover of obstacles, it symbolizes abundance, success & good luck in new ventures. Sculpted with the intention of utilizing the piece during ceremony, not one minor mistake could be made in its creation. This special emphasis on perfection amplifies the qualities which Ganesha represents. This fact, when combined with the primary properties of aventurine, releasing negativity and removing energy blockages, which are in complete alignment with the meanings of Ganesha, make this a truly powerful piece combining natural and human art. Even if you are not familiar with Hinduism or Ganesha, the spiritual and artistic commitment that was taken in sculpting, polishing and painting this auspicious piece speaks volumes when you encounter it.
