Lord Ganesha was the son of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva. However at the time of his birth, Lord Shiva was not around, so when he came to visit Goddess Parvati, Ganesha did not recognise him and did not allow him to enter his mother's abode. Wild with rage, Lord Shiva severed Ganesha's head. Seeing her infant son dead, Goddess Parvati orders Lord Shiva to reincarnate her son. Lord Shiva therefore orders his servants to bring him the head of any infant. After his servants bring the head of a baby elephant, Lord Shiva merges it with Ganesha's body and brings him back to life much to the satisfaction of Goddess Parvati.
