A well cast late 19thC Bronze Genesh Sculpture.Seated on a throne with skulls pertruding from it. Ganesha's first role as a young boy was gatekeeper, guarding his mother's privacy, and in the process enraging his father Shiva, who cut his head off. Life is all about dichotomies, choices. Sacred vs. profane, right vs. wrong, profound vs. mundane. Standing at the threshold, Ganesha is a mediator, one who guides us through the path ahead, a bridge between our past and the possibilities of the future. Hence Ganesha is often referred to as the Lord of Thresholds.This fine example is in good condition and came from a French collection.
