Lladro porcelain figurine depicting Ganesh holding a veena. This instrument is the instrument most usually played by the goddess Saraswati. The veena represents the arts and learning. The piece is full of other attributes from Ganesha’s iconography such as the gada (or mace), the paasha (noose or rope), and the broken tusk. All of them have their symbolism explained on the “avatars” or traditional stories about Ganesha. The piece carries a sense of peace and spiritual intensity. The mystical expression in Veena Ganesha’s eyes is entrancing and powerful, a reflection of Lladró’s high artistic mastery. Combined with the God’s graceful music-playing gesture, the image conveys the deep mystical connection between the divine musician, the sacred melody and the listener. The piece reflects the sculptors’ mastery and passion for small details of Lladro artists.
