About the Product

Finishing: Stone Setting

Process: Sand Casting

The process cycle for sand casting consists of six main stages which are explained below
Mold-making -The first step in the sand casting process is to create the mold for the casting. In an expendable mold process this step must be performed for each casting. A sand mold is formed by packing sand into each half of the mold. The sand is packed around the pattern which is a replica of the external shape of the casting. When the pattern is removed the cavity that will form the casting remains. Any internal features of the casting that cannot be formed by the pattern are formed by separate cores which are made of sand prior to the formation of the mold. Further details on mold-making will be described in the next section. The mold-making time includes positioning the pattern packing the sand and removing the pattern. The mold-making time is affected by the size of the part the number of cores and the type of sand mold. If the mold type requires heating or baking time the mold-making time is substantially increased. Also lubrication is often applied to the surfaces of the mold cavity in order to facilitate removal of the casting. The use of a lubricant also improves the flow the metal and can improve the surface finish of the casting. The lubricant that is used is chosen based upon the sand and molten metal temperature.

Clamping - Once the mold has been made it must be prepared for the molten metal to be poured. The surface of the mold cavity is first lubricated to facilitate the removal of the casting. Then the cores are positioned and the mold halves are closed and securely clamped together. It is essential that the mold halves remain securely closed to prevent the loss of any material.
Pouring - The molten metal is maintained at a set temperature in a furnace. After the mold has been clamped the molten metal can be ladled from its holding container in the furnace and poured into the mold. The pouring can be performed manually or by an automated machine. Enough molten metal must be poured to fill the entire cavity and all channels in the mold. The filling time is very short in order to prevent early solidification of any one part of the metal.

Cooling - The molten metal that is poured into the mold will begin to cool and solidify once it enters the cavity. When the entire cavity is filled and the molten metal solidifies the final shape of the casting is formed. The mold can not be opened until the cooling time has elapsed. The desired cooling time can be estimated based upon the wall thickness of the casting and the temperature of the metal. Most of the possible defects that can occur are a result of the solidification process. If some of the molten metal cools too quickly the part may exhibit shrinkage cracks or incomplete sections. Preventative measures can be taken in designing both the part and the mold and will be explored in later sections.

Removal - After the predetermined solidification time has passed the sand mold can simply be broken and the casting removed. This step sometimes called shakeout is typically performed by a vibrating machine that shakes the sand and casting out of the flask. Once removed the casting will likely have some sand and oxide layers adhered to the surface. Shot blasting is sometimes used to remove any remaining sand especially from internal surfaces and reduce the surface roughness.

Trimming - During cooling the material from the channels in the mold solidifies attached to the part. This excess material must be trimmed from the casting either manually via cutting or sawing or using a trimming press. The time required to trim the excess material can be estimated from the size of the casting's envelope. A larger casting will require a longer trimming time. The scrap material that results from this trimming is either discarded or reused in the sand casting process. However the scrap material may need to be reconditioned to the proper chemical composition before it can be combined with non-recycled metal and reused.


Ganesh: Brief Introduction

Ganesha is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshiped in the Hindu pantheon.His image is found throughout India and Nepal.Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains Buddhists and beyond India.

Although he is known by many other attributes Ganesha's elephant head makes him particularly easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honored at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits and explain his distinct iconography.
IconographyRepresentations of Ganesha show wide variations and distinct patterns changing over time. He may be portrayed standing dancing heroically taking action against demons playing with his family as a boy sitting down or on an elevated seat or engaging in a range of contemporary situations.

Ganesha has the head of an elephant and a big belly. This statue has four arms which is common in depictions of Ganesha. He holds his own broken tusk in his lower-right hand and holds a delicacy which he samples with his trunk in his lower-left hand. The motif of Ganesha turning his trunk sharply to his left to taste a sweet in his lower-left hand is a particularly archaic feature. A more primitive statue in one of the Ellora Caves with this general form has been dated to the 7th century.[38] Details of the other hands are difficult to make out on the statue shown. In the standard configuration Ganesha typically holds an axe or a goad in one upper arm and a noose in the other upper arm.AssociationsObstacles
Ganesha is Vighneshvara or Vighnaraja the Lord of Obstacles both of a material and spiritual order. He is popularly worshipped as a remover of obstacles though traditionally he also places obstacles in the path of those who need to be checked. Paul Courtright says that "his task in the divine scheme of things his dharma is to place and remove obstacles. It is his particular territory the reason for his creation."

Krishan notes that some of Ganesha's names reflect shadings of multiple roles that have evolved over time.Dhavalikar ascribes the quick ascension of Ganesha in the Hindu pantheon and the emergence of the Ganapatyas to this shift in emphasis from vighnakartā (obstacle-creator) to vighnahartā (obstacle-averter). However both functions continue to be vital to his character as Robert Brown explains "even after the Purāṇic Gaṇeśa is well-defined in art Gaṇeśa remained predominantly important for his dual role as creator and remover of obstacles thus having both a negative and a positive aspect

Buddhi (Knowledge)

Ganesha is considered to be the Lord of letters and learning. In Sanskrit the word buddhi is a feminine noun that is variously translated as intelligence wisdom or intellect. The concept of buddhi is closely associated with the personality of Ganesha especially in the Puranic period when many stories stress his cleverness and love of intelligence. One of Ganesha's names in the Ganesha Purana and the Ganesha Sahasranama is Buddhipriya. This name also appears in a list of 21 names at the end of the Ganesha Sahasranama that Ganesha says are especially important. The word priya can mean "fond of" and in a marital context it can mean "lover" or "husband" so the name may mean either "Fond of Intelligence" or "Buddhi's Husband"

Frist Chakra
According to Kundalini yoga Ganesha resides in the first chakra called Muladhara (mūlādhāra). Mula means "original main"; adhara means "base foundation". The muladhara chakra is the principle on which the manifestation or outward expansion of primordial Divine Force rests.[95] This association is also attested to in the Ganapati Atharvashirsa. You continually dwell in the sacral plexus at the base of the spine. Thus Ganesha has a permanent abode in every being at the Muladhara. Ganesha holds supports and guides all other chakras thereby "governing the forces that propel the wheel of life"Family And ConsortThough Ganesha is popularly held to be the son of Shiva and Parvati the Puranic myths give different versions about his birth. He may have been created by Shiva or by Parvati or by Shiva and Parvati or appeared mysteriously and was discovered by Shiva and Parvati.

The family includes his brother War lord Kartikeya who is also called Subramanya Skanda Murugan and other names. Regional differences dictate the order of their births. In northern India Skanda was an important martial deity from about 500 BCE to about 600 CE when worship of him declined significantly in northern India. As Skanda fell Ganesha rose. Several stories tell of sibling rivalry between the brothers and may reflect sectarian tensions.

Ganesha's marital status the subject of considerable scholarly review varies widely in mythological stories. One pattern of myths identifies Ganesha as an unmarried brahmacari. This view is common in southern India and parts of northern India. Another pattern associates him with the concepts of Buddhi (intellect) Siddhi (spiritual power) and Riddhi (prosperity); these qualities are sometimes personified as goddesses said to be Ganesha's wives. He also may be shown with a single consort or a nameless servant. Another pattern connects Ganesha with the goddess of culture and the arts Sarasvati or Śarda . He is also associated with the goddess of luck and prosperity Lakshmi. Another pattern mainly prevalent in the Bengal region links Ganesha with the banana tree Kala Bo.

The Shiva Purana says that Ganesha had two sons: Kşema (prosperity) and Lābha (profit). In northern Indian variants of this story the sons are often said to be Śubha (auspiciouness) and Lābha. 10 Ganesh MantraOm Gan Ganapataye Namo Namaha Shree Siddhi Vinayak Namo Namaha I Ashta Vinayak Namo Namaha Ganapati Bappa Moraya ||
