This is a greeting card with an image of Lord Ganesh Dancing. Ganapati, as He is also known, is the elephant headed God of Wisdom and Success. He is believed to oversee auspicious beginnings and can remove obstacles. Ganesh's elephant head is a symbol of his immense wisdom. Ganesha is one of the sons of Lord Shiva
, who is believed to be King of the Nagas
(Divine Serpents). In his left hand he holds a lotus blossom, a symbol of purity in Hinduism and Buddhism. In his right hand he holds an ax to symbolize man's attachment to material desire. As the God of Success, his image is to be worshiped before any other gods during Hindu rituals.
