Ganesh



I created this for a blog entry over on Damn Data detailing the news reports that Hindu statues are 'drinking' milk in temples across India. The base image was an oil painting (unfinished) that I scanned and then went to work on digitally. I just hope the sanskrit makes sense and does say 'Ganesh' as it is meant to.

MAY LORD GANESH BLESS YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST AND DEVOTION EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY HAVE ATTEMPTED IT AS A PRANK/JOKE.LORD GANESH IS ALWAYS FOND OF PRANKS AND JOKES.
YOUR SANSKRIT SPELLING HAS TO IMPROVE.THERE IS A SMALL MISTAKE IN THE NAME.YOUR PICTURE OF GANESH HAS TWO EXTA HANDS.THE NAGOPAVEEDHAM IS MISSING.ONCE GANAPATHI ENTERS YOUR HEART ALL THE OTHER GODS AND GODESSES FOLLOW.
MAY YOU BE BLESSED WITH ALL HEALTH,WEALTH AND HAPPINESS.THE BEAUTY OF GANAPATHI IS THAT HE ALWYS LOOKS CHARMING WHICHEVERWAY YOU DRAW HIM OR CARICATURE HIM.
WITH BLESSINGS
