The Lord of Beginnings

Ganesha, from Wikipedia is:
is one of the best-known and beloved representations of divinity in Hinduism.[1] Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify.[2] Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits, and explain his distinct iconography. Ganesha is worshipped as the lord of beginnings, the lord of obstacles (Vighnesha),[3] patron of arts and sciences, and the god of intellect and wisdom.[4] He is honoured with affection at the start of any ritual or ceremony and invoked as the "Patron of Letters" at the beginning of any writing.

I love this guy. Saw a wonderful book at Barnes and Noble that was exclusively about Ganesha and his myths and outcomes. He is very tangible and a friend. Its good to know that Ganesha is out there. Plus, who cannot adore this sort of art.
