While Durga is the fierce goddess of the battlefield, Annapurna represents the goddess of plenty. She is calm, fruitful and fertile. Unlike most goddesses, Annapurna carries no weapons. Her most famous shrine is in Banaras, the city sacred to Siva. In Bengal, there is a tradition of producing clay images of the goddess ladling out food to Siva, who is shown as a begging mendicant.

Annapurna (she who fills with food) is represented as a fair woman, sitting on a lotus throne. In one hand she holds a rice bowl and in the other, a ladle. The pendant foot rests on a pot full of grain. Siva, his body smeared with ash, is begging for alms, with the kamandalu handing on his shoulder, a tiger skin on his arm, his long hair hangs down his back, instead of being tied in a knot. His third eye is prominently displayed. A serpent coils around his neck.

Annapurna's attire and throne is dyed in bright colour and Siva in light colour. The background has soft, pastel shades with the characteristic crushed colour effect.
