different mixture of his elephant-like head, a pot belly and a small mouse makes
him different from all other Hindu gods in appearance. Many a times, he is
represented standing, sitting, dancing, like a warrior in heroic action against
demons, playing with his family as a boy, sitting down, or in a significant
range of contemporary situations when depicted in festival displays.

Ganesha has four hands, holding an axe in the right upper arm, while the
left upper arm holds a noose, signs of his ability to cut through obstacles or
to create them as required. In the third one he carries laddoo (a sweet
delicacy) and the fourth hand’s palm is always there to bless people. His vahana
is a tiny mouse which represents the dominated demon of pride and
impertinence.
