Ganesha and Kali

An interesting sculpture of Ganesha with Kali on the back at our resort in Gujarat, India.

Ganesha, also spelled Ganesh, also called Ganapati, elephant-headed Hindu god of beginnings, who is traditionally worshipped before any major enterprise. Lord Ganesha clears the obstacles and paves the way for us to move forward in life. 

On the back side of Ganesha is the depiction of Kali. Alongside being the Goddess of darkness, destruction, and death, Kali is also a symbol of Mother Nature because she is believed to be timeless and formless, representing the creation of life and the universe as well.
