Ganesha, from Wikipedia is:
is one of the best-known and beloved representations of divinity in Hinduism. Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. 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), patron of arts and sciences, and the god of intellect and wisdom. 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.
