The most visited Ganesh mandal of Mumbai, Lalbaugcha Raja Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandal revealed the first look of the idol on Monday.
Here are the five looks of the idol over the past five years
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.

The theme was Vitthal.
Trishul was used the theme. In Hindu mythology, trishul is usually associated with Lord Shiva (Ganesha’s father).
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).
