3) Creation Story Research

The culture I chose is Indian culture. I decided to choose a story based off of a divine being known as Ganesh. Ganesh, born with an elephant head and a big belly, and his brother Karthik, beautiful with strong limbs, were born to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi, the divine couple. Ganesh and Karthik were praised and liked by the deities. One day, a question appeared; who is the wiser brother? Ganesh or Karthik? The deities were curious so they asked Lord Brahma, the creator of the world. Since he is the creator of all beings and not the creator of all divine beings, he too did not know the answer to the question. Lord Brahma decided to get assistance from his son, Narada, who is known for stirring up trouble. Narada flew over to the divine couple’s abode and produced a golden mango that bestowed eternal wisdown to whomever eats it. Since the divine couple could not share it with one another, they decided to give it to one of their sons. Ganesh and Karthik got into a squabble and thus made it into a competition. Whoever could go around the world three times first would get the mango. Karthik used his peacock for the adventure. Ganesh, knowing his animal is less superior, found a loophole. he walked around his parents three times knowing that his parents represented the entire universe. Pleased with this, his parents gave him the golden mango, making Ganesh the wiser brother.


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
