Ganesha by archanN Ganesha by archanN
archanN.net :heart: tokyocandies

Archan Nair and Rubens Cantuni present their interpretation of Ganesha , also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh and also known as Ganapati, Vinayaka, and Pillaiyar, is one of the best-known and most widely worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India.Hindu sects worship him regardless of other affiliations.Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.

p.s: the skull doesnt represent evil. the fact that he is holding a skull is, he prevents or destroys evil. the artwork is our own interpretation, and is not how ganesha is represented everywhere

looking really good archan! I think the skull creates sort of balance in the images, I dont understand why people want the skull to be removed.
very nice work mate! well done

I love it! Ganesh is one of my favorite of the Hindu pantheons. I love all the symbolism, the lotus flower, the rat, etc. Really great picture.

Hes the god of thieves and writers, of all things incomplete and, of course, the god of wealth. Thats why he's so popular.

My, such beautiful colors! I love how they balance brightness and softness so perfectly. It is wonderful to see a modern interpretation of Ganesh, too!

The rat represents Ganesh's mount, right?
