One morning, about two years ago, we opened our Shoppe doors and discovered this stunning statue at our door. We did some research and discovered GANESH (the Hindu name for this icon). He is associated with many attributes including “remover of obstacles” and is the patron of arts and sciences. Draped around his neck was a beautiful strand of light jade beads. No note, no letter, no explanation accompanied his arrival.
Collectively, we compiled a list of potential donor candidates, but to no avail. None of them acknowledged bringing the gift. Weeks and months, now years have passed and Ganesh has become permanent fixture in the Shoppe. He presides over our daily activities and smiles upon all who enter our store.
When you visit the Treasure Shoppe, be sure to check out our treasured gift. He is a true wonder.
