People in India are highly emotional and touchy when it comes to the Gods and religions. Maybe that’s why the trend to carve Gods & their stories on canvas is still highly popular.

Artists across the world have left all the conventional themes behind except this one. It is so because people love to have an artwork of their favourite deity in their home or office.

For instance, if we talk about India itself, people here love to collect the paintings of their favourite Gods and Goddess.

I, however, is going to cover the reasons for the love people have for the Ganesha paintings.

Ganesha, son of Lord Shiva and Parvati, is adored and worshipped by billions of Hindus. But, what is so catchy about this deity that provides him the title of the ‘God with most followers’ in India?

This blog is going to give you enough reasons that show why people just love Ganesha artworks:

Ganesha is considered lucky

Perhaps every one of you might (or not) have said “Ganpati Bappa Morya” once in your life if you reside in India. Ganesha is considered as a good omen for starting, purchasing or producing something new.

Like for the opening of the shop, inauguration of a new house, or for the baby shower, Hindus in India do Ganesh puja.

Along with this, Ganesha paintings are said to bring prosperity and happiness to the home. This is why these paintings are in demand across the year.

They make the best gifts

It is amazing to see how Ganesha paintings fit every occasion as an ideal gift.

As already said, for occasions such as baby shower, opening of new shop/business, and housewarming the paintings of Ganesha are perfect gifts.

Now, there are a number of Hindu festivals where Ganesha is worshipped.

Like, Diwali, the festival of light, starts with the puja of Ganesha and his wife Goddess Laxmi on the main evening.  So, people not only purchase these paintings to gift but to adorn their own home too.

Another festival named as Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated to enjoy the birth of Ganesha.

People love to dance and carry the statue of Ganesha to the river or lake or sea to submerge it. It is a big festival and millions celebrate it.

It is a traditional custom to beautify your home or workplace with the alluring paintings of Ganesha on this day.

Apart from this, presenting to your loved one or purchasing Ganesha painting for yourself on the occasion of New Year is believed to bring luck to your entire year.

Ganesha – a friend of children

Ganesha was a naughty kid, but with great focus, and a wise mind. This is why Ganesha has earned a special place in the hearts of kids.

Hence, you will find a lot of paintings or other artworks of Ganesha given as birthday presents for kids.

Along with this, people hang exquisite art pieces of Ganesha in their kid’s rooms to spiritualise the entire aura and bring positivity.

Wrapping up

Indians love Lord Ganesha very much. They love to have sculptures, miniatures, paintings, and any form of art related to Ganesha with them.

You can find such artworks on the workstation of employees in corporate too. Even the CEO of your company might be having an abstract art of Lord Ganesha in his/her cabin.

Having an exclusive painting on the wall of your home is the ultimate dream of every art lover. In the midst of everything that is speeding, your home is the place where you can relax and have a serene time with your loved ones.

Therefore the importance of buying the right painting becomes more when it comes to adorning your home.

You may have encountered the signboard or an advertisement stating “paintings for sale” and your inner art aficionado suddenly wakes up.

You want to straightaway run-up to the art gallery or the seller and explore the collection. But you don’t do that. Why?

Because you may have some confusions, fears, and doubts that can completely change your mind about purchasing an artwork.

To erode this dilemma, I am jotting down a few points that will help you in making your purchase decision. Let’s begin:

Why is important!

The world of art is interesting and has a lot of space for new ideas and interpretations to fit in. But, someone who is looking to buy a piece of art, should be clear about what he/she wants.

Like when you decide to buy a painting for your home, what’s your intention?

Is it for an empty wall space, or to add some extra color to your room, or is it because you are making a collage of paintings?

Whatever it is, it should be crystal clear in your mind. When you know why you require purchasing an artwork, the search becomes much easy.

Keep a watch on the pocket

No one wants to buy something they cannot afford. One common dilemma that art lovers experience is the cost factor.

Generally, the most exclusive and appealing paintings by the renowned artists are extremely expensive.

Contemporary & abstract art are some of the most expensive paintings of all forms. So how does it go then?

As per my experience, I think what you have is enough to purchase what you require.

Like when you decide how much you are ready to pay, look for the paintings in the similar range only. For instance, if your budget is $ 500, you can attain an exquisite painting for the same amount.

Few of you will think “What if I am only ready to pay $ 100?”

It’s not an issue. You still can win some great pieces of paintings for the same amount.

It is recommended that you go for the paintings of the emerging artists.

Go online

Technology has empowered the art lovers so that they can now seek their favorite artist’s work sitting on their couch at their home.
