Ganesha, one of the most popular deities in India is symbolic of new beginnings, success, wisdom, generosity and is perceived as a destroyer of evils and obstacles. In Indian tradition, Ganesha is worshipped across the country with equal fervour during festivals, rituals and other celebrations.

His multiple forms have been visualized, interpreted and portrayed in thousands of artistic representations. A constant source of inspiration, here are a few beautiful images from artists, which I would like to share with you.
