Here we see Parvati standing to Shiva's right, with her right hand held by Shiva's corresponding arm. Next to them, standing on the same pedestal, is the divine pair of Lord Vishnu and Lakshmi, who are not only witness to the wedding but also bless the newly wed couple by sprinkling water from the pot held in Vishnu's hand. All the four deities wear different hair styles and crowns. While Shiva has a tall crown announcing his supreme status, Parvati has a hairstyle suiting ascetics, suggesting the immense penances she underwent in order to obtain Shiva as her husband. Vishnu and Lakshmi wear crowns typical to South Indian deities. The two gods wear the conventional Indian dhoti, while the goddesses are adorned with dhotis clinging to the limbs much like a traditional sari.
