He is dancing on a circular base attached to a reverse lotus flower placed on a rectangular pedestal. The base of the pedestal is comparatively wide. A layer of the body of the pedestal is incised with lotus petals. His mount, the mouse, has been shown at the corner of the pedestal on the proper left side.
Ganesha's left leg is slightly bent and touching the base with the front sole, while the right leg is upturned and touching the waist. This dancing posture is known as ardhparyankasana in the iconographical texts.

In that representation, Ganesha bears in his four hands a broken tusk, elephant goad, noose (pasha) and sweetmeat (modaka).
