Ganesha, revered as the remover of obstacles in both Hindu and Buddhist traditions, came to be a source of inspiration for Yorgos Papadopoulos during his two year ‘retreat’ in Andalucia. The piece, he holds dear, was recently donated to The Geeta Mehta Brighter Future Fund and raised thousands of pounds in aid of the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Charity. The Rainbow ball was held on May 10th, 2014 at Plaisterers’ Hall on One London Wall. Thank you Ganesha for removing some obstacles for our children!
