Quite A Good deal of fresh study has been recently attempted by many a scholar on some well-known deities, their religious systems and iconographies as well as their Metaphysical symbolism. However, only A Few writers have endeavoured to discover new or obscure aspects of certain lesser known gods or goddesses. One such outstanding example is that of Vinayaki, the female form of the god Ganesa-Vinayaka. The present work introduces the problem of studying this curious goddess while discussing her names and identity as known from the texts, her antiquity as well as her iconic descriptions and representations in Indian art through the ages. The learned author has collected and analyzed in critical details a great amount of material that had remained so far not properly studied with respect to this unique aspect of Ganesa, conceived as transformed into a female, with elephantine bust and affiliated attributes.Printed Pages: 52.
