Welcome home!! When a piece of art suddenly changes expression, you know something has happened. Carved from yak bone and embellished with turquoise, this mask is not just another addition to my collection. When Doc gifted it to me after he returned from his recent pilgrimage, I thought it was a beautiful piece of work. But honestly, noticed a rather “ rudra” look in the eyes and wondered why Lord Ganesh looked so annoyed and restless.
We spent half an evening selecting the right spot for him and no less than 30 minutes of having placed him, Doc and I exchanged notes on how his eyes had suddenly changed to a tender parental gaze. Doc actually said “ innocent child like “. I thought it was more of a serene guardian look. Just then I also realized that the trunk is turned to the right.
We know each other. Maybe you were restless that I didn’t recognize you right away.
