p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Ganesha-s from Pen


The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated next week.

For over 150 years, the town of Pen in Maharashtra, India has specialised in the crafting of Ganesha murti-s. The pieces created and fashioned here are renowned for their exquisite detail, colour, and filigree.

These photographs were taken last month in a store in Goa that imports idols from Pen in advance of the festival.

Note: Pen ( पेण ) is pronounced like “pain” but with the retroflex stop ‘n’, a sound not found in English.

From my blog post.

Absolutely vibrant, sharp, crisp and clear amigo!
Appreciate you telling the "story" behind this diety! That helps the context of your compositions and what uninformed Westerners don't know about languages.
