In Bundi, India we were taken to a street of homes featuring altars of Ganesha, the Hindu elephant-headed boy god, above the door.
According to a local all homes in the region add an image of Ganesha on their walls along with their names and the date of their marriage as a way to bless their union.
Another Ganesh-blessed union.
And another, this one using a pictorial tile mural.Ganesha also lives in temples where he will be adorned with flowers and sometimes tin foil.Holding dried flowers.A painting of Ganesh hugging a lingon with two of his four arms; the other two hold an icon and what looks to be either a cobra or a piece of paisley. A wooden panel with a crude pink Ganesha carved on it.Most of these images of Ganesha were found in India but this chubby boy-elephant god exists in Hindu temples around the world, this one in Singapore.
