Brass Shiva with baby Ganesh on his lap and surrounded by a flamin halo, made using the traditional technique known as "lost-wax".

 

Shiva is one of the greatest gods of Hinduism and forms part of the Trimurti. The "horned god" and phallic worship of the Indus valley civilization may have been a prototype of Shiva worship or Shaivism as this is mentioned as early as the Upanishads and the Mahabharata (500–200 BC). Shiva is identified with the fierce Vedic god Rudra and, in his terrible aspect, is the god of destruction and cosmic dissolution.

 

Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesh's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesh is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies.

 

Please note that this statue weighs around 6kg.
