Stained glass Ganeshas

GANESHA, THE elephant god, is the most popular in the Hindu pantheon. What better occasion can there be to look for images of the God than Ganesh Chathurthi? There are people who collect Ganeshas in all mediums — granite, plastic, metal, crystal and semi-precious stones. Now, Farna has put forth a range of Ganeshas in painted stained glass format in time for the festival.

Chubby baby Ganeshas, austere looking ones in traditional poses and those in modern avatars — Farna has them all in vibrant colours. The use of glass crystals enhances their beauty. The pieces, well framed, range from very small (Rs. 200) to medium, large and very large ones. Completely handmade, each piece vouches for the artistic ability of the creator and is certain to add grace to any interior. The collection is on sale at Farna, Gems Court, Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Nungambakkam.
