Ganesh, Satsanga Retreat, Goa, India.



Product Description

I photographed a statue of Ganesh, Hindu God of beginnings, at the yoga retreat in February 2020. Here is my representation in needle felt, he is boldly colourful and was great fun to felt in 3D, using photographic elements alongside needle felting. The musicians were playing beautiful sitar music early one morning after our yoga practice. I wanted to evoke these memories by including their image in the piece. Ganesh signifies hope and aspirations, he is remover of obstacles, and thought to bring good luck. He was so joyful to felt, building him up three dimensionally, capturing a character from the aged stone carving.
