ONE (1) Fair Trade GANESH Ganesha *Choose Your Stone* // Ethically Carved // Opportunity, Luck, Prosperity, Remove Obstacles, Road Opener
Each one hand made by some of the most skilled stone-carvers in the world - FAIRLY. The artisans in India from whom I source these beautiful carvings (the Buddha heads, sitting Buddhas, and Ganeshes) have been sought out for their impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail. Not to mention their own intimidate understanding of these deities and their impact on the spiritual community. The most important part, however, is that these artists are FAIRLY and justly compensated monetarily for their work. What most people do not know is that many Indian carvers work in terrible conditions and their work is exploited - sold for large amounts of money, but they aren’t fairly compensated for their time, work, and expertise. I’m extremely proud to be affiliated with a collective of artisans who are being fairly paid, and to bring these gorgeous works of art to you with the highest vibration possible - because every part of it coming into being was done ethically! You can enjoy your piece in good conscience knowing that their artists were taken care of.
CARE FOR YOUR DEITY
Give your deity a designated, sacred space, a beautiful altar that s/he is safe from small hands or pets, and yet is in a common space where they may be prayed to or spoken to daily. Treat your deity as a statue as a mini living god or goddess in your home, offering flowers, herbs, other crystals, and little bowls of food to as gestures of gratitude - and they will treat you well in return, bringing you luck, love, and wealth! As your deity is carved of natural (never dyed, heated, or treated) crystal that has been created with love, smudge or smoke-cleanse regularly with palo santo, sage, or another dried herb.
ABOUT GANESH (GANESHA)
Ganesh is a Hindu deity, known by many names, and is considered the Lord of Obstacles. He is a deity of Good Fortune, the Remover of Obstacles, and a symbol of prosperity, wealth, possibility, and good luck. A patron of the arts and sciences, a deity of wisdom and intellect, he is perhaps one of the most well-known gods in the Hindu pantheon. Ganesh doesn’t just remove obstacles for you - he’s also known to place obstacles in the way of those who wish ill, harm, or to behave against the greatest good of all. There are so many fascinating tales of Ganesh’s life, deeds, and experience - he’s full of whimsy, but is incredibly powerful, and one of the most beloved and commonly prayed to gods of the Hindu deities.
