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.
