Great ! Thanks for the post ! Mangal Moorti Morya !

Four handed Ganesha with one in a blessing posture other with laddu , third with a noose and the fourth with a tridernt (ankush) is as per Pauranic faith. This statue is a rare presentation of this form. What could be more auspicious viewing ( Darshan) than this rare chance to view centuries old heritage statue. My hearty thanks for your kind and friendly gesture !!

pretty closer to the kashmiri style of his depiction
