The Dancing Ganapati is gold figure displayed in the Ruben Museum of Art. The dazzling multi-colored metal design sought my interest because seeing an elephant god with many arms is kind of weird. Ganapati, the deity is an All-seeing lord which is compassionate in Buddhist Culture. The sculpture makes use of several alloys and turquoise inlays, it looks fancy and expensive. I’m sure this is normal because all gods should be seen as rich since they are respected. If the people who believed in Buddhism wanted the God to do something good for them, they better appreciate the God the right way, or else. Ganapati was described as a “powerful wealth-bestowing deity”. This means he was very popular to devoted Buddhists, because being rich is usually seen as better off than being poor. Red was the Elephant-headed God’s main color and its twelve arms are ready to serve the people who worshipped it. I chose Ganapati because this God stood out the most when I was walking around the Ruben Museum of Art.
