Now that's a birthday card! At least I think that's what it says at the bottom. This is so incredible. Was it a full idea before you drew it or did it just evolve as you went along?

I was surprised, when I learned the legend of Ganesh recently, at how Freudian the story is:


According the very well known Shiva-Purâna version, the Shiva's wife, Pârvatî the Mountaineer, was disturbed once by her husband who entered the house, even though she was taking her bath.

The goddess felt annoyed, because she didn't have any personal servant to guard her door. So, she rub her body skin and, with the perfumed unguents obtained, she molded the shape of a young boy, as glorious as daylight. Then, she granted him life and named him Ganesh, ordering that he should be on guard in front of her house.

When the child intended to impede the great god to enter the house, Shiva enraged, transformed himself in his Rudra form and requested the to attack Ganesh. In the battle, Ganesh got his head cut off.

Ascertaining the incommensurable disaster striking her son, Pârvatî was inconsolable. Unable to find the child head, Shiva grafted a elephant head on the dead body and gave him life again. Trying to repair his big mistake, he recognized Ganesh as his son and empowered him on all his servants; so he became "Ganapati".
