I'm a man not an animal...

What do you get when you cross Spiderman with Ganesha? A funky picture (thanks to Kevin Roberts blog). A connection Kevin doesn't make in his commentary is that in the Hindu religion Ganesha is patron of arts and sciences, god of intellect and wisdom - Lord of Obstacles and Beginnings - a literally creative force. The other aspect to conjoining him with Spiderman is that Ganesha is always part human, rather than being an elephant god - so no great conceptual leap for Hindu's to make (they probably don't apply a post-modernist filter to it).

I just thought the idea/image was kind of surprising and interesting.
