CAT NO: K.2632

DESCRIPTION:Ganesha , Shiva's son , has a man's body and an elephant's head. This combination of human and animal form came about when Ganesha , who did not know his father but who guarded his palace stopped him from coming in after a long journey. Shiva , in a fury, reacted to his unknown guard by chopping off his head. The intervention of Parvati , Shiva's consort and Ganesha's mother , made it possible to attach to the body of the young man the head of the first begin to pass the scene of the drama. In this way , Ganesha acquired the strength of the elephant , kept the intelligence of man and became a god.
