Perhaps the most popular of the Hindu deities, the elephant god Ganesha is a familiar figure in the West as well. Who can resist this chubby remover of obstacles, this patron of arts and sciences, this god of beginnings?

This is a serious volume for the serious student. The book makes special reference to the Puranas in discussing the mythology and iconography of Ganesha. Included are 24 color plates .
