Ganesha Playing Tablas–

This rare sculpture depicts the remover of obstacles in a most unusual and wonderful moment–playing the tabla (drums) with an utter joy for life. Ganesha has the demeanor of a playful child, creating the heartbeat of the universe on the tablas. From Ganesha’s head piece down to his arm bands and fingers, the intricacy of this remarkable piece gives life to Ganesha’s play; even his trunk, draped gracefully over his shoulder, reflects the love and tenderness in his eyes.
His charming garments and beautiful headdress are carefully etched with loving detail by the artist.
