Ganesh is the patron God of writers and intellectuals, and arguably the most well-known of the Hindu Gods. He is worshipped across all sects of Hindus and also by Buddhists and Jains. Mantras and rituals dedicated to Ganesh are offered before the commencement of any sacred rituals or festivities to ensure protection.
As with other Hindu deities, there have been wide variations in his representation over time and across various countries and cultures. Seen here in a contemporary, minimalist sculptural style.
