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.

The level of customer service provided by you was amazing ! No other Indian Web services, except very few, are giving customers this kind of detailed attention. Thanks Exotic India, I got the book yesterday.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
