Earring by Gillian Hurrie Designs.
GANESH, or Lord Ganesha, is a Hindu deity with the body of a human but the head of an elephant. His parents are Lord Shiva and the Divine Mother Parvati. He is the remover of all obstacles. Ganesha's head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of the universe, as well as the two aspects of the human personality, wisdom and emotion.The trunk can uproot a tree and yet lift a needle off the ground. Likewise, the human mind must be strong enough to face the ups and downs of the external world and yet delicate enough to explore the subtle realms of the inner world.
These earrings are a beautiful way to keep Ganesh close and your obstacles AWAY.
