The Elephant in the Garden (part 2)

I am very excited to finally share these pix with you ALL!

Lord Ganesha project completed and safely ensconced in his new hOMe.

 

 

Fused glass and steel Ganesha and us in our home.

 

It took me a bit of time to go through and gather the images and do the editing. I have had many projects leaving my studio in the last while and taking the time to post about them and share the details takes time!

 

Lord Ganesha was honoured and welcomed into his new garden home in a beautiful Puja (prayer) ceremony that included the pouring of milk, water, sandalwood paste over the form of the fused glass and steel Ganesha sculpture.

 

You can see and read more about the ceremony with Pandit Tejomaya at Yoga Sadhana Mandir here.

I am grateful and honoured to have been asked to create this powerful symbol in fused glass and welded steel. Ganesha is known as the remover of obstacles

We have been connected to Ganesha ever since we went to India several years ago, where he is revered as a Lord.

Om Ganapataya Namaha
