Grey-black volcanic stone sculpture representing the Hindu elephant headed god Ganesha. He is seated on a platform of skulls; the soles of his feet are together, his right leg bent. Two of his four arms are down, two raised. His trunk is reaching into a dish of sweets held in his lower left hand; in his lower right hand he holds a broken tusk (?) and in his upper left hand a string of beads. The skulls and the seated pose with feet together are typical of Ganesha figures from the 13th century East Java kingdom of Singhasari.
