Chopard Is Known To Unveil Timeless Intricacies: Inspired By The Supreme Lord in Indian Mythology: Lord Ganesha
This year, once again Chopard, ahas showcased its intricate craftsmanship with its newly launched two new editions inspired by Lord Ganesha:
L.U.C Quattro Spirit 25 Ganesha Edition.
L.U.C XP Urushi Ganesh Edition.
Chopard’s cultural curiosity and sensitivity are reflected in each of the watches in this refined and powerfully exceptional timepiece. These innovative timepieces pay tribute to the supreme Lord in Indian Mythology, that represents good luck, money, prosperity, and wisdom in the Hindu pantheon.
Ganesha has an elephant’s head, he is regarded as the God of wisdom and memory, a link between the macrocosm and the microcosm, capable of removing obstacles and inviting new beginnings in life. Chopard, thus proposes a theme subtly linked to the Indian symbolism of Ganesh with his large belly and pachyderm head and trunk. Lord Ganesha, is also accompanied by a mouse – depicted in some portrayals as serving as his mount – which he is said to have captured during his childhood when the little creature was terrorizing those around him.
The New Ganesh Edition watches have been crafted in two iterations—a Grand Feu enamel one, and another, Urushi.“The concept behind the Chopard Ganesh watch stems from a deep admiration for the rich cultural heritage and spiritual symbolism in India, in particular the connection with Lord Ganesh,” says Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, CEO, of Chopard. “We wanted to create a timepiece that pays tribute to this revered deity while showcasing the craftsmanship and artistic excellence that define Chopard. Lord Ganesh, known as the remover of obstacles and the bestower of wisdom and intellect, embodies qualities that resonate with individuals worldwide. We aimed to capture the essence of Ganesh’s divine presence and infuse it into a watch that would serve as a source of inspiration, positivity, and harmony for its wearers.”
