Thai Ganesha idol from Metropolitan Museum of Art Store

The Ganesha figurine from the Metropolitan Museum of Art Store or The Met Store is a reproduction of the Thai original ‘Seated Ganesha’ statue from the 15th century. The Met Store creates reproductions of original sculptures which are part of Museum’s collection. The limited edition (400 pieces) Thai bonded bronze idol is hand patinated (the chemical process by which a patina forms) and costs $300.

The Ganesha idol is seated in a cross-legged yogic posture on a raised pedestal with a decorated molding. The statue will be available in India at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store in New Delhi.

The price of this Met Store Ganesha is comparatively less when considering the costly Lladro ($900) and Lenox ($2000) Ganesha idols.
