    I really love finding Hindi crafts and antiques! but Ganesh is definitely a favorite. i found this one yesterday and it's a really cool one. he has a piece of fruit in his hand and he's crawling on all fours and looking up over his shoulder - sort of. i don't know much about the mythology behind it, but Ganesh is known as the 'remover of obstacles' which makes him very special in my book.
