Celadon ceramic mug, 'Resting Ganesha' (Thailand)

The Hindu god of auspiciousness, or success, Lord Ganesha is greatly revered in the Hindu pantheon and is portrayed here enjoying a rest. Thailand's Duangkamol hand-paints his image in brown on this light blue mug, which she renders of Celadon ceramic. Ganesha's image is unfinished, while the rest of the mug features a crackle finish.
