30 Day Photo Challenge, Day 16
Today's assignment was a photo of my most loved possession. This was an extremely difficult challenge for me, as I have a number of possessions that mean a great deal to me, many in connection to people I love. Most of these items are equally important to me, but since I could only choose one, today it is the encaustic my mother, Ugly Stepsister, made for me of Ganesh, the Hindu elephant god. He is doing yoga, and his little rat can be seen crawling under the yoga mat in the corner (next to my turquoise Laughing Buddha statue). Ganesh is known as the Lord of Obstacles, as the Lord of Buddhi (knowledge/wisdom & learning), and as a protector.
