Hand painted on Abalone shell drilled - an important piece, this cannot be repeated * This is exquisite - Ganesha the Indian God hand painted in an abalone shell. * Sadly the artist has passed away now. * Gold paint contains real gold. * This piece is embedded with synthetic stones. * It will not fade - obviously it can be damaged if scratched. * The shell is drilled so the piece can be strung directly or it can be set in precious metal. (We have carved inside stones and set these shells in to the stone which looks fabulous.) * This is superb - and it cannot be repeated by this artist. * Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify.Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies. Ganesha is also invoked as patron of letters and learning during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits and explain his distinct iconography. (Taken from Wikipedia)
