Ganesha WIP II by rgyoung Ganesha WIP II by rgyoung
Here's a quick update of my Ganesha sculpt; he's changed a bit since the last WIP I posted, and I think he's coming along well. Still very challenging, but extremely fun to sculpt as well, and like my favorite projects, I'm learning so much from sculpting him.

That little critter's armature you see by his foot is going to be a rat, who will be resting one paw on Ganesha's foot. The rat/mouse is a very common element in depictions of Ganesha, and the rodent symbolizes (among many things) darkness and negative desire. It's often placed at Ganesha's feet, and in some interpretations, the deity rides a giant rat, or dances on the back of one; all illustrating his mastery over base/negative desire.

I try to keep my dA page up to date, but I do update my Tumblr page more often, and there are additional views of this sculpture there: [link]

Super sculpey/sculpey firm mix, over a wire/foil armature, with Apoxie Clay tusks, right around 12" tall.

As always, thanks for looking!
