Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, he is frequently seen with a mouse or a rat, some times dancing with it, sometimes he is dancing on it and often he is just sitting on it , having conquered it. The rat eats crops so it is important for ganesh to have conquered the rat and removed the obstacle to a good harvest. For a somewhat newer Indian work this piece is quite well done and very detailed.
This statue is in excellent condition and measures 9 inches in height 7 1/4 width and 4 inches deep.
The weight is 8 pounds.
