Unmatta Ganapati

Unmatta Ganapati is a very rare form of Ganesha and is quite similar to the Uchishta Ganapati form. In this form Ganesh is in a playful mood.

The Unmatta Ganapati murti holds ankusha in the back right hand, the pasha in the back left hand; the modak is in the front left hand and danta is held in the front right hand. There is a flower garland on the neck of Unmatta Ganapati.

The trunk of Unmatta Ganapati is shown to be playing with the flower garland hanging from the neck. This particular feature is what makes the form be termed as Unmatta.

Unmatta Ganapati is mainly associated with Tantric worship.
