In Bundi, India we were taken to a street of homes featuring altars of Ganesh, the Hindu elephant-headed boy god, above the door.
According to a local all homes in the region add an image of Ganesh 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.Ganesh also lives in temples where he will be adorned with flowers and sometimes tin foil.A painting of Ganesh hugging a lingon.A wooden panel with a crude pink Ganesh carved on it.Most of these images of Ganesh were found in India but Ganesh exists in Hindu temples around the world, this one in Singapore.
