Detailed Description Defaced, large, image of Ganesha carved out of a crude Basalt stone. The seated, two handed image has a large torso with broad shoulders giving a giant look to the figure. Face, hands and belly are damaged. The right hand is probably in abhayamudra (blessing) and in the left hand the deity is (probably) holding modhaka (sweet). Trunk and sacred thread around the body are visible. The figure is treated roughly without any embellishment or ornamentation.
