As India celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi on Friday, artists across the country have found the perfect opportunity to give shape and form to their creativity.

From a figurine of Prime Minister Narendra Modi carrying the Lord on his shoulders to the Ganpati stopping a distressed farmer from committing suicide, idols this year are replete with themes inspired from contemporary topics.

Ganesh Chaturthi has also given wings to sculptors to think out of the box and churn out idols from articles ranging from wine bottles and wheat flour to biscuits and peat moss. Quirky and bizarre, these idols are taking the Internet by storm.
