Vintage Ganesh Door hanging with Multi Coloured Frill
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. On one side sits Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, seated in a lotus blossom. On his other side are two figures churning butter. In each corner stands an impressive peacock below which elephants, peacocks, horses and parrots look towards Ganesh. Beautifully embroidered flowers in coloured silks surround the border. It has a dark blue trim with three cotton hanging loops. Good condition, with a little wear and tear, a few small discolourations including a pink stain under the right peacock, due to its age. Made by the farming (Kanbi) communities of Saurashtra. Circa 1960.
