Lakshmi, the consort of Vishnu, is often invoked to bring fame and prosperity. The Sri-Sukta hymn, one of the earliest dedicated to the goddess, associates many symbols to her. Lakshmi associated with lotus is often called Padma. Frequently, the goddess is shown in her Gajalakshmi image with elephants on either side showering her with water from their trunks.

The artist making use of the artistic liberties that are allowed to him places Lakshmi on the elephant in the manner Durga is seated on her lion. This is a rare representation of this four-armed goddess. She wears a kirtimukuta with an elaborate prabhavali. She sits with one leg folded in and the other pendant. Heavily bejewelled, Lakshmi looks very much the goddess associated with wealth. Not only her, but the elephant is also decorated with lavish ornaments and richly caparisoned. The tusker raises its trunk in salutation, holding a lotus by its stem.

Smaller in size is a devotee standing in obeisance, on the extreme right.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
