This is a feature on Ganesha- The Elephant God. He seems to be quite popular on deviantart, with so much awesome art based on him. Thank you guy for sharing!

Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश), also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh, also known as Ganapati  (Sanskrit: गणपति), Vinayaka, and Pillaiyar, is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu pantheon.  His image is found throughout India and Nepal.  Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations.Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.

Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles (Vighnesha, Vighneshvara),patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions.

Ganesha is considered to be the Lord of letters and learning.

i have not yet decided the theme for the next feature. But i guess it will be different from the last two themes that i did (bollywood and Lord Ganesha), but maybe an Indian/Indian subcontinent theme. I'm not sure right now. Whatever catches my fancy. Let me know if you have any ideas.
