Okay, lets go ahead and balance out that wonderful but costly shirt I ran earlier this week with this lovely and thankfully inexpensive piece of work from Rebecca Hahn.
Now, I’ve always been the curious sort when it’s come to religion. While I hardly consider myself an expert in any of them, I spent a decent amount of time in my early 20’s studying over quite a few of the eastern takes. And while I’ve found that the basic tenets of most religions are rather similar, the real differences come from the stories which are told to reinforce those beliefs.
But before I go off on a tangent about religion and open up a can of worms that I’d rather not, I must admit that some of the tales in the Eastern philosophies intrigued me the most during my studies. Take Ganesh for example. He’s a four armed god with a broken tusk on his elephant’s head who rides a mouse. Ganesh also happens to be the lord of good fortune and the physical embodiment of the entire cosmos. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s sort of cool.
Rebecca has done a wonderful and lighthearted take on Ganesh that manages to be both respectful of the Hindu dogma and graceful at the same time. Although the shirt is a very loose interpretation, it does a great job of portraying a Western interpretation of an Eastern deity. Good jorb, yo!
