Small statues of Ganpati and Shiv

I'm not sure how many of you know about lord Ganpati and lord Shiv, but these are in the list of the most worshiped GODs in India. You will find statues of different GODs in every house of India. In Jaisalmer [Rajasthan State, India], small statues of different GODs were on sale in a palace named Patwon ki Haveli [meaning Palace of Patwas]. One of the shops had a nice variety; it caught my eyes.

Yellow is a broadly used color in Jaisalmer as the stones naturally found there are yellow colored. Everything is made of that stone! See the walls on which the puppets are hung in my Puppets of Rajasthan post.

  1. These are so nice but pale by comparison to that incredible temple you show in your Nov 2009 picture...it would be nice to have one for one's home, however.
