This is a beautiful, heavy bronze, 14k Gold Gilt and Gold Paint Ganesh Bodhisattva (cold gilding process, verified chemically as 14k Gold from sample ) This is in the Tibetan and Nepalese style, from Nepal.

He is the remover of obstacles, and here has a serene painted face, loveingly colour led, withh such life like eyes, and wears the iconic high hair, crown, body jewellery, and robes of an enlightened Ganesh Bodhisattva. With 4 arms, he bestoes the abhaya mudra of fearlessness, holds a Parasu ( axe), a Pasa ( noose) to carch, remove ( cut off ) obstacles and on the path of enlightenment, and sweet delicacies. A small mouse climbs the lotus base, Ganeshs 'Vahana' ( Mount), Mūṣakavāhana ( mouse mount )symbolising that Ganesh crushes useless thoughts, which multiply like rats in the dark.

He sits in royal pose on a lotus base ( please note the green oxidisation )

The base has a vajra symbol consecration copper plate ( it has been cleaned by previous owner)
