Seated high on a blooming lotus, Goddess Lakshmi, the auspicious goddess of prosperity holds lotuses in two of her hands. The main right hand grants her worshippers Abhaya (fearlessness) and the left makes the boon-granting gesture, known as Varada-Mudra. The open palms of both these hands are marked with auspicious symbols.

Goddess Lakshmi wears in this sculpture a towered-dome like crown typical to South Indian iconography. Strands of her lustrous hair can be streaming from its two sides. She wears a sumptuous amount of jewelry, befitting the goddess of prosperity. Her ornaments include bracelets, anklets, armlets, chokers and also many long necklaces cascading down from her neck.

Whenever Lakshmi is depicted as an independent goddess, as here, she is shown with four arms. The other iconographic scenario is one where she is shown with her consort Vishnu. In the latter case she is almost invariably represented with only two arms. The purport being that the power of the goddess is immensely magnified when she is worshipped in her independent status.

This sculpture was carved in district Salem of Tamil Nadu. The artist is Shri P. Sengottuvel.

Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.
