" GAJANANAM BHOOTHA GANAATHI SEVITHAM
KAPITHA JAMBOO PALASAARA BAKSHITHAM
UMAA SUDHAM SOKHA VINAASA KAARANAM
NAMAAMI VIGNESHWARA PAADHA PANKAJAM"
I bow to thee,Oh LORD VIGNESHWARA
-Destroyer of sadness and problems...
The omnipotent Vigna raaja-Destroyer of obstacles-
is portrayed here in Tanjore style painting...
Since I wanted a relatively simple looking one,
I refrained from making a traditional -
gold and stone embellished Mantap-but
just added a well defined border of red stones...
and that embellishes the sacred form of GANESHA.
