I'm quite a realist when it comes to representations. I have lots of trouble with making abstract art, and abstract art interpretations. So here is about as abstract as I can get. The string is literally the outline of those aspects of Ganesha that I found necessary for a traditional representation of Ganesha. I had done some research into the Hindu Religion some years ago, and Lord Ganesha is a favorite of mine. He is represented in my home sacred space.
I hope you enjoy.
