GANESH SEATED ON MOUSE STATUE Details
Height: 6.5 inches
Width x Depth: 5.5 x 2.5 inches
Another belief is that Lord GANESHA is able to go into nooks and corners of the world and do his job as the Destroyer of Obstacles because his vehicle is a mouse, who basically can slither through tiny holes and narrow pathways, even in the darkness of night. This gives the quality of all-pervasiveness to GANESHA.
However, the most likely reasoning for why the mouse is the vehicle of Lord GANESHA is this:
Lord GANESHA is known as the Conqueror of Obstacles (Vighnaharta). In ancient times, when agriculture was the primary mode of sustenance, rodents were one of the biggest obstacles to prosperity. Rodents would destroy standing crops, eat up stored grains and thereby result in severe losses for the common man. Lord Ganesha, in having a mouse/rat as his vehicle, is symbolically shown to have conquered this pest, thus staying true to his name of Vighnaharta.
