This statue depicts the Remover of Obstacles and the Lord of Beginnings, the Hindu God Ganesh, portrayed in a traditional pose of meditation.
Ganesha's belly represents generosity & total acceptance.
Ganesha has a single tusk which signifies one-pointedness. Even the implements Ganesha wields are symbolic.
Ganesha's upraised hand depicts protection. It means, 'Fear not, I am with you', and his lowered hand, palm facing outwards means endless giving as well as an invitation to bow down.
This is also symbolic of the fact that we will all dissolve into earth one day.
In his hands he carries the 'Ankusa' (signifying awakening) and the 'Paasa' (signifying control). With awakening, a lot of energy is released, which without proper control, can go haywire.
