Ganesha in Hindu statues is known as anthropomorphic or the depiction of a half-animal human form. Ganesha is one of the anthropomorphic statues. Ganesha’s unique characteristics are depicted as a human being with an elephant head (half-faced). 

Ganesha is depicted in various ways; some are sitting, standing, and sometimes dancing. If in a sitting position, Ganesha cannot cross-legged because Ganesha is always depicted has a large belly.

Ganesha’s trunk always points to the left, sucking the honey in the bowl. His left hand symbolizes the childish character in Ganesha, which states that He is a child. The bowl is sometimes depicted as a split skull. The symbol represents Ganesha absorbing the brain (science). He is called the God of science. This is because Ganesha is depicted as absorbing the brain, which is described as the source of human intelligence.

Ganesha has four hands or also known as caturbiuja. This is the distinction between humans and Gods. From the four hands, the front of the right hand carries a broken tusk (ekadanta). Some statues are represented intact, and some are described as erratic. Ganesha can use the broken ivory to kill his enemies.
