Ganesha is the son of Shiva and Parvati. One day, Parvati created Ganesha while Shiva was away. She wanted to take a bath and asked Ganesha to stand guard. Shiva came home and did not recognize his son whom he had never met. When barred from entering his home, Shiva became angry and lost his temper. He beheaded Ganesha. Obviously, Parvati was overcome with grief, as was Shiva when he learned Ganesha was actually his son. He ordered a new head from the nearest animal be bestowed upon the boy giving him his iconic elephant visage.
