Kavadi, also known as Kavadi Attam or ‘Burden Dance’ in Tamil, is a ceremonial sacrifice or offering that is practiced by devotees of Lord Murugan (Kartikeya, the son of Shiva, and the Hindu God of War), as part of the Tamilian festival of Thaipusam, which emphasizes debt bondage. The practice involves devotees bearing a physical burden or a kavadi, to seek Lord Murugan’s help. The act is usually performed on behalf of a loved one who may be in need of healing. It is performed to balance a spiritual debt. Devotees usually carry the burdens while walking and dancing along a pilgrimage route.
This exquisite panel depicting Lord Ganesha, the brother of Murugan, would have been used as a weight or burden during the Kavadi ritual. Made of wood, this old collectible is carved in exceptional detail.
