2. Handcrafted Shree Ganesh
A simple way to decorate your house for Ganesh Chaturthi is by bringing home a lifelike statue of Vishwaraja (king of the world). The handcrafted marble artefact is made using a 250-year-old technique by expert artisans of Jaipur. Such massive and detailed handwork is not easily available anywhere else.
Fortunately, we bring you two options – 30 inch majestic Lord Ganesha replica and 12 inch, 8 kg, beautiful Ganpati on a lotus idol. You can bring home any one according to your requirements.

APL panchmukhi Ganesha painting is another amazing work of art by Odisha’s craftsmen. The five faces in the painting reflect the five layers of our soul. You can also have eco-friendly, Ganesha clay wall hanging. It’s a simple art that can bring vibrancy to your home.
