A big head represents to think out of box
Big eyes to look beyond what you see.
Large ears to hear other words attentively.
Broken tusk represents that sacrifice is needed to pursuit wisdom
Most Giant stomach serves to digest good and bad in life.
Laddoos in Lord Ganesh hand represents awards for hard work
The prasadam we offer too good represents giving and sharing.
Axe in Ganesh’s hand represents cut of all the materialistic attachment.
So from Lord Ganesh, you can learn many things to come up in life..
