The chaturbhujadhari Lord Vishnu is in a silken dhoti, the hem of which grazes His feet. The angavastram floats about Him as He raises one of the anterior hands in blessing. In the other He holds, but not wields, a gada; the characteristic chakra and conch in the hands of His posterior arms. The crown on His haloed head and the shringar that graces His torso match those of His wife’s, the beauteous Devi Lakshmi’s.
Her saree is cinched at the waist by a distinctive kamarband, from which descends a series of pleats (this is in keeping with Her Lord’s attire). She raises the same hand as His in blessing; in the other, She cradles a pristine lotus. A striking likeness is to be found in their composure of countenance, which is one of superlative consciousness and bliss.
