Small Ganesh Figurine Statues Made of Brass From Thailand, 2 to 3 Inches
Many styles of Brass Ganesha Figurine Statues between 2 to 3 inches tall, in various poses. These statues are made in Thailand from brass and either have a gold-colored brass finish, or a silver-colored nickel finish, which prevents rusting and helps keep them looking bright and appealing over the years.
Ganesha (also known as Ganapati, The God of Doors), is venerated as the God of Good Luck (technically, good beginnings or opening doors of opportunity).
Dancing Ganesha: In this pose, Ganesha is depicted dancing, similar to the Shiva Nataraja (Lord of the Dance) pose, since after all, Lord Shiva is the father of Lord Ganesha. This dance represents the constant energy that fills and sustains the universe.
Ganesha With A Parasol: In Hinduism and Buddhism, the Parasol (a sun umbrella) represents protection. So this image depicts the protections aspects of Lord Ganesha.
Ganesha With Flame Halo: This pose reflects Ganesha's lineage from his father, Lord Shiva. You will notice that Ganesha is wrapped by a Cobra (commonly associated with Lord Shiva) and the flame halo represents universal energy that sustains the cosmos.
Reclining Ganesha: Hindu deities are often depicted at rest and this particular reclining pose might reflect when Lord Ganesha inscribed the Mahabharata, as Ganehsa holds a broken tusk in the right hand, used for inscribing the poem when it was first recited by Vyāsa.
