by JK Silver$52.00
This is a beautiful mostly clear high quality Quartz Ganesh Elephant Carving from Northern Thailand. The Ganesh was hand carved right into the natural stone. There is a tiny nick at the very bottom at the toe of the Ganesh about the size of about half a grain of rice. It is minor but I I have discounted the piece a little for this. Ganesh is know as the destroyer of obstacles and lord of beginnings. His emergence as a deity arose about the 4th century AD in India spanning into Nepal and Tibet and devotion became popular in both Hundu and Buddhist religions. One may wish to research further about the history and significance as well as devotional act and offerings, the practice of Puja from the home.
