Ganesha appears as a distinct deity of the Hindu Pantheon in the form known in the 4th-5th centuries BC, during the Gupta period, although there are Vedic testimonies and precepts.

Ganesha knows such a great deal is because he is considered Lord of the physical plane (Muladhara), one that, among other things, offers wealth or wealth.

Ganesha is especially known and venerated as:

Lekshmi Goddess
According to 14th-century legend, two mischievous creatures called imps were sent by Satan to do evil work on Earth. After causing mayhem elsewhere in Northern England the two imps headed to Lincoln Cathedral where they smashed tables and chairs and tripped up the Bishop. An angel appeared in the Angel Choir and ordered them to stop. One of the imps sat atop a stone pillar started throwing rocks at the angel whilst the other imp cowered under the broken tables and chairs. The angel turned the first imp to stone allowing the second imp to escape. The imp that turned to stone, the Lincoln Imp, can still be found, frozen in stone, sitting atop his stone column in the Angel Choir.

I am pleased to offer here a delightful bronze bell derived from this historic legend. This is a nicely preserved example with a dark patina, complete with its original handle and clapper, cast in 17,th or 18,th century.
The bell is 2-5/8" in diameter and stands 4" in height. It weighs nearly nine ounces!
