Ganesha Leads Shiva and Durga in Procession
Not on view
The elephant-headed god Ganesha holds a goad and a bowl of sweets. Shiva, mounted on his bull, Nandi, catches the celestial Ganges river in his hair, which can be seen flowing in an arch to the ground from the top of his head. The goddess Durga carries a trident in one of her four arms, and rides her tiger mount. This colored drawing is possibly a fragment of a long scroll.
