Here we are offering an amazing old Ganesh Deity Mask. Ganesh is the Elephant Head Deity revered in both Hindu and Buddhist Traditions. He is one of the most beloved figures in the pantheon of Gods since as early as the 2nd Century. Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rites and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as patron of letters and learning during writing sessions It is an amazing carving with lots of distinctive features. It is an antique mask, however exact age is unknown. Quality is very very good and wood is heavy weight. These quality masks are very rare and hard to find. It is a great joy to be able to offer such a great mask as this. We will not likely find another one. Size measures about 21″ tall 13″ wide and about 5″ deep.
