This artwork appeals to my core values of peace at mind. Back home in North Carolina, I have a place that looks similar to this portrait. This is my peaceful place where I go to relax and think about life. this portrait reminds me vividly of this place. The artwork instills a relaxed mood on me when I examine it. This piece shows me that I cherish the things that make me feel calm and relaxed.
This art piece is called the "Dancing Ganesh", which is the most beloved representation as a problem solver and bestower of blessings. I believe that this piece represents the good life because this figure is what the Hindu people look to as their friendly and accessible God. I believe that the sculpture embodies the theme of Celebration because Ganesh is a joyous figure to the people so it makes people feel a reason to celebrate.
