Sometimes.  Ganesha is the elephant headed god who is the remover of
obstacles.  Some representations of Ganesha Show him with 4 or more arms
but the same is true of many of the other Hindu gods.  Shiva is frequently
shown with 6 or 8 arms in his role as Lord of the Dance (i.e. Lord of the
Universe) but Agni (Lord of Fire) and some goddesses are also represented
with multiple arms to illustrate their multifaceted nature.
