Happy Birthday, Lord Ganesha!

This week marked the beginning of the 10-day Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, much better known as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha, the Hindu God revered for being the remover of obstacles, holds a unique place in many homes. His form is found in the kitsch into the elegant; it could be understated or hold a place of prominence. Here’s a little group of Ganeshas I’ve discovered.

The artist has painted a Ganesha onto a circa-1947 postcard. I really like the blending of old and new crafts and would frame a string of 3 to fill a wall.
