This idol can be use a decorative object for home, office etc. We also called Ganesh by many names and spelled such as Ganpati, Elephant- headed god of Beginnings who is traditionally worshipped before starting any work of job, major enterprises. His Vehicle is large Indian bandicoot rat, which symbolizes Ganesh's ability to overcome anything to get what he wants.
Like a rat and like elephant, Ganesh is a remover of obstacles. Ganesha is god of prosperity and wisdom. Many different stories are told about the birth of Ganesha, including one in which Parvati makes her son out of a piece of cloth and asks her consort, Shiva, to bring him to life. One of the best-known myths, however, begins with Parvati taking a bath and longing for someone to keep Shiva from barging in on her, as was his habit.
As she bathes, she kneads the dirt that she rubs off her body into the shape of a child, who comes to life. But when Shiva sees the handsome young boy-or when the inauspicious planet Saturn (Shani) glances at him, in some variants of the myth that attempt to absolve Shiva of the crime-he or one of his attendants cuts off the child's head.
When Shiva cuts off an elephant's head to bestow it on the headless Ganesha, one of the tusks is shattered, and Ganesha is depicted holding the broken-off piece in his hand. According to this version of the myth, Ganesha is the child of Parvati alone-indeed, a child born despite Shiva's negative intervention. Yet Ganesha is traditionally regarded as the child of both Shiva and Parvati.
