The dotting elephant-faced Parvati-putra Ganesha in the Hindu cosmos is the first-revered divinity, who is the source of eternal auspiciousness and fulfillment in every aspect of human life. Invoking Ganesha in a blissful mood, this wooden statue has been carved and painted beautifully to attract an unending wealth of spiritual and material wealth in your space. The orange-hued body of Ganesha, which resonates with his roopa as the annihilator of the Sindoor (literally, vermillion) demon, is adorned with silver ornaments that aesthetically contrast with the color of Ganesha. Sitting in a unique, relaxed posture, Ganesha charmingly plays the Shehanai, while vegetation as the symbol of the origin of life surrounds him.
How to care for Wood Statues?
Wood is extensively used in sculpting especially in countries like China, Germany, and Japan. One feature that makes the wood extremely suitable for making statues and sculptures is that it is light and can take very fine detail. It is easier for artists to work with wood than with other materials such as metal or stone. Both hardwoods, as well as softwood, are used for making sculptures. Wood is mainly used for indoor sculptures because it is not as durable as stone. Changes in weather cause wooden sculptures to split or be attacked by insects or fungus. The principal woods for making sculptures and statues are cedar, pine, walnut, oak, and mahogany. The most common technique that sculptors use to make sculptures out of wood is carving with a chisel and a mallet. Since wooden statues are prone to damage, fire, and rot, they require proper care and maintenance.
It is extremely important to preserve and protect wooden sculptures with proper care. A little carelessness and negligence can lead to their decay, resulting in losing all their beauty and strength. Therefore, a regular clean-up of the sculptures is a must to prolong their age and to maintain their shine and luster.
