This idol of Hindu god of knowledge, Lord Ganesha, was found washed up on the Bay Run outside UTS Rowers by an eager-eyed walker. Each September, Hindus celebrate the festival dedicated to Ganesha by immersing their personal idol of him in a body of water. Khairatabad in Central India is renown for its three-storey tall Ganesha idol, which is immersed every year in the Hussain Sagar lake using cranes. Ciao believes that this Ganesha washed up from a similar (but smaller) celebration.
