Ucchista Ganapati is a Tantric form of Ganesha, an important and well-loved Hindu deity with the head of an elephant. In his tantric form, Ucchista Ganapati is seated on a massive throne with consort in his lap. His unusual blue skin color represents his pure open consciousness. On either side of Ucchista Ganapati are Dev Dasis engaged in artful worship, song, music and dance. The scene is embellished by the vision of a South Indian temple under a pink and grey monsoon sky.
