This year, the Ganesha idol has been sculpted to resemble the Korma avatar — the second avatar of Lord Vishnu.

The idol rests a tortoise throne against the backdrop designed Nitin Chandrakant Desai, a famous art director and production designer from Bollywood, of a Gajraj Mahal.

Keeping the concept of peacock in mind, Santosh Kambli made Mayuraasan for Lalbaugcha Raja. He wanted devotees to know that peacock is Kartikeya’s (Ganesha’s brother) vaahan (vehicle).
