Vintage Ganesh Door hanging with Blue Edge and Lattice Work Tassels
This piece would look beautiful as a wall hanging in any setting but could also add a dash of colour to an alcove, bookcase, window or doorway. It would also make a vibrant addition to a child’s bedroom. A traditional vintage Ganesh door hanging, providing an auspicious welcome and the blessings of Ganesh, the elephant-headed God of good fortune and happiness. At his feet sits Krauncha, his mouse, and on either side he is attended by a dancer. In each corner Lord Krishna plays his flute to his cows beneath the ancient symbol of fertility. Below this scene are brightly coloured flowers and two vibrant peacocks. The border is intricately stitched with colourful flowers and leaves. The toran is trimmed in bright blue with 3 cotton hanging loops. Excellent condition with a few small stainches due to age. Made by the farming (Kanbi) communities of Saurashtra. Circa 1960.
