The ganesha idol in this diya has four hands, elephant's head and a big belly. He is normally shown with one hand in the abhaya pose of protection and refuge and the second holding a sweet (modaka) symbolic of the sweetness of the realized inner self. In the two hands behind him he often holds an ankusha (elephant goad) and a pasha (noose). At the base of the dancing ganesha, is a diya (lamp). The dancing ganesha is considered very good for vaastu (the indian concept of directions) and it is very auspicious to have a dancing ganesha facing the entrance of your home or office. This wall hanging is appropriate to be placed at the entrance of your home or office. This also makes a great decorative item for your home. Excellent gift for occasions like house warming's and other traditional functions.
