Re: Ganesh image - Trunk direction
Two links regarding Ganeshas trunk
All about Ganesha you will find in ‚Loving Ganesha‘ from Himalayan Academy, which you can read online or download. In chapter 5, page 94 ‚Ganeshas Trunk Poses‘.
The first group are examples of valampuri (turning to the right).Group two are edampuri (turning left). In most icons of Loving Ganesa the trunk is turned toward the left (from the perspective of the Deity). Only in rare cases is it turned to the right.
