A collection of Ganesha statues at the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh. Interesting to compare to the print here, and note that while one is sampling a cup of coffee, most of the statues shown above are also tasting "something" from the cup in their left hand with their trunk. Never noticed this. [NOTE: Genesha's right tusk, which is traditionally depicted as broken and held in his right hand, was used to write the Mahabharata].
