Slightly Wounded Ganesh on a Pig

In yesterday's post, I proudly showed off a fond member of my Kitchen Icon Family - the Hindu God, Ganesh who I've placed on a v. life like & endearing miniature pig.
The wonderful La Belette Rouge  alerted me to the fact that of course Ganesh is the Remover of Obstacles. If you look closely at the photo, you can see that the upright hand closest to the daisies is holding something. It's a convenient lasso, which is supposed to capture & then eliminate all your obstacles. I was thrilled! Just what I need right now. 
Sadly, I knocked off one of Ganesh's other arms - one that is holding something - maybe a shell or a writing implement of some sort. I hope to hell that this Slight Wounding doesn't diminish His effectiveness. At least the lasso is intact.

Ganesha is also the god of writers. He helps writers who have blocks( hence my unending love for him). He was so inspired to write that he broke off his own tusk to use as a writing implement when he couldn't find a ball point pen. Maybe you could give him a pen since he is missing his arm with the tusk. I am sure he would appreciate it.

And, I feel sure Ganesh will still help you even if he is slightly wounded.:-)
