Reclining version of Ganesh or Ganesha is molded from a brass figure I found in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in a small stall at the foot of the famous Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple. Measures 3.75″ long by 2″ wide and 3.25″ tall, and weighs over 4.5 oz. Burn time: about 15-20 hours.
Smells fantastic in pure Oregon beeswax from hardworking bees. 100% cotton wick for non-toxic light. As he is a bit irregularly shaped, be sure to place a suitable dish or holder underneath to avoid damage to surfaces.
Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश; also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh, also known as Ganapati, is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India and Nepal. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.
Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him particularly easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honored at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions. (from Wikipedia)
