A festive brass Ganpati 
This time around, the occasion was Sankashta Chaturthi. The idol looks beautiful and majestic with its intricate details, while the refurbished carved elephant stand serves as a perfect pedestal for the Ganpati.

The elephant decorated stand itself has brass inlay detail on the top surface
The Ganpati idol sits pretty on a wooden stand made up of three elephants in the living room where the air is fragrant with herbal incense placed in an antique brass incense holder.

The incense holder has exquisite patterns embossed on it and was sourced from Nepal.

This is how the final setting looks, Brass urli, Lord Ganpati, a silver diya and the brightly colored place-mat

The bright yellow marigolds and rose petals provide a dash of color in the solemn setting

Since the decor of the surrounding area is sober and neutral, with the veneer wall unit serving as the backdrop (and the ceremonies were to be performed in the evening), the floating marigolds and rose petals in the antique finish brass urli lend some color and brightness to the room.

The end result was a resplendent display, colorful and fragrant, and joyfully festive!
