This artwork depicts the birth story of Lord Ganesha. Ganesha was born unknown to Lord Shiva. Goddess Parvati needed someone to guard the chambers while she was taking bath. It happened in the past that Shiva devotee allowed him access when she did not want this to happen. So she made a figure with turmeric paste and put life into it.
Then she asked the boy, not to allow anyone to enter the house. Ganesha followed his mother’s orders to the word and did not allow Shiva any access to the house. Shiva got angry and asked his followers to attack the boy. But they were conquered. Shiva got surprised. Shiva decided to fight himself in his divine fury cut Ganesha’s head, killing him quickly. When Parvati came out from her bath and was aghast at the scene. She was very very angry at her lordship for what had happened and explained him the situation.
Lord Shiva wanted to make it up to Parvathi very badly and agreed to put life back into Ganesha by putting the head of the first sleeping living creature that came in sight which was sleeping with its head to the north. He sent his soldiers to go in search of the creature. The first creature which came in sight was an elephant. So Lord Shiva re-created his son with the head of the elephant. Hence the trunk of Lord Ganesha.
Shiva’s third eye can be seen on Ganesha’s forehead, because it means enlightenment for all.
