I've been going writing a bit of backstory on Ganesh recently, so I've been poking around the Google for pretty pictures. I've seen many images of the individual Hindu gods, but I hadn't seen a lot of imagery of Shiva and Parvati with little Ganesh before.





This isn't exactly how I've pictured them, but I kinda like it. They look like they're just hanging, maybe gonna watch some Corazon de Azul on TV (Parvati's even got a snack tray!).

Aww, Ganesh was a chubby kid, wasn't he?

Who's the chubby baby? Who's the chubby-wubby little kid? YOU ARE! You're a chubby little guy!

Makes sense. Who ever heard of a thin elephant?

Hmm, perhaps the statuary was done by people unfamiliar with the Hindu gods and assumed that divine beings wouldn't be pudgy?

The only other place I know of in India is that Temple of the Rats.

Now THAT'S crazy.

I hope he didn't drink the milk that's left for the rats...
