Solar Eclipse 2012: Ganesha
The symbolism is India: Hindu and Islamic, but the scene is the wall of my house in Sonoma, California. The patterns are cast by a lattice fence during the 2012 Solar Eclipse. The Ganesha was carved for me by a villager in Changu Narayan, Nepal. A friend of mine, a UN official there, gave the man money out of his own pocket to start a crafts business.
