Hand-painted glazed ceramic tile
Badri Narayan made two Ganesha works on glazed ceramic tile, identical in size but different in palette. This one has a predominance of red and black, with tints of pink, blue and yellow. Narayan dabbled in various genres, mediums, and subjects, giving an individuated treatment to all his works, but he also painted popular themes such as Ganesha, the god of good luck and the first one to be worshipped among all Hindu deities, who has remained a perennial favourite with artists and writers, and between poets and filmmakers. Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva, is presented here with his vaahan (vehicle), the mouse, and laddoos (rounded sweetmeats), without which no Ganesha imagery is ever complete.
