Up close, the details of MADHATTER's avatar emerge to reveal the characteristics of his father Shiva [Parvati, of course, being Ganesh's mother]. On the trunk are seen the three stripes Shaivites "paint" in ash usually on the forehead, preferably of cremated corpses OR MANIFESTED ash "from thin air" - not very common, representing at once Trimurti: Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, as well as the 3 gunas - raja, tama, and sattva. Shiva is the one always having these three "stripes" of the three deities. Shiva's devotees include ghosts, thus the cremation ashes. There is at least one experience I shan't reveal here that validate these stripes on a rare occasion I've had.
Above this, where the "third eye [ajna chakra]" lives, is the Trident Shiva is almost always depicted as carrying, painted in Shiva's honor.
Om Namah Shivaya.
