Join us in celebrating the arrival of a unique 13th century stone sculpture of the Hindu god Ganesha on loan from the Trustees of the British Museum.

The event will feature a blessing of the sculpture and of a Hindu shrine created by members of Birmingham’s Hindu community dedicated to Ganesha.

Design a Rangoli to take away and learn more about the Hindu faith by exploring other objects in the gallery.
