Unusual Ganesha statue discovered in Java

1 Comment

An unusual 12th-century Ganesha statue was recovered by the Mpu Purwa Historical Object Preservation Center in East Java from a private collector. The statue is said to be unique in Indonesia because it depicts the elephant-headed god riding a mouse. It seems that many local archaeological treasures are in the hands of locals and even local hotels for use as mascots!
