Ganesha wears a short sampot held by a narrow belt.
Among the first Hindu deities to be venerated in the form of a large-scale stone sculpture in Southeast Asia, Ganesha presides over obstacles, either creating or removing them. At the beginning of any endeavor, to assure its success, worshipers affectionately offer him prayers and food, such as the sweet cakes and radish he enjoys in this sculpture.
