The Remover of Obstacles and Lord of Beginnings, Ganesha, can be found in homes throughout the world. Across borders, he is hard to resist. Usually portrayed whimsically and playfully, he represents hope, optimism, and good will.
But here, Ganesha sheds a single tear. A reminder of the pain that inevitably comes but is too often hidden when we are faced with the challenge of removing obstacles and finding our new beginning.
