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.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 god exists in Hindu temples around the world, this one in Singapore.
