#Ganesha #India, Tamil Nadu; Chola period (880-1279), 11th century Ganesha, the son of #Parvati and #Shiva, is one of the most popular gods of the #Hindu pantheon. He is worshipped as the god of good luck and remover of obstacles. Ganesha's elephant head is the result of a quarrel between Shiva and Parvati. Metal images of Ganesha from the Chola period are fairly common as they were carried at the forefront of every temple procession and were essential at temple festivals.
