12 Arms

Ganesha He is shown with four arms, 12 arms, even 32 arms - and with three faces or even five faces - or sometimes as simply as a triangle of mud with a streak of vermilion at its apex, in some humble homes.

He is of red color with six heads and 12 arms, one of which is like a goat, and embraces the goddess ShaShTi who is seated on his lap.
