    This statue is of the Hindu God Ganesha. He is the son of the most powerful god SHIVA and he has human body and an Elephant’s head. 🙂

      I had not read your comment when I posted my comment. I do think he is fabulous, but I would not wish you to think that I was being disrespectful in any way to such an important statue.

        You were not disrespectful. You can’t disrespect someone when you don’t know about them and your comment for totally fine. His presence is believed to bring success and positive energy around. Hope it does the same. 🙂 :d

        Thank you so much Gaurab, you are very kind.
        He has a very powerful presence and I am not surprised to hear that he is associated with success and positivity.
        I live in England and whenever I visit Glastonbury I go to a very special shop there where the owner travels to India to buy quilts, furniture and treasures. I recently was compelled to buy a painting , which, it was explained to me, was of Shiva and his consorts. It is beautiful.

        Yes, Shiva is the most powerful god and also the most kind and innocent, he fulfills the wishes of every person who asks for his blessings from their heart. 🙂
