Sacred texts depict Lakshmi as the goddess of wealth and fortune, royal power and beauty. She is said to have risen from the churning of the ocean. Vishnu was mesmerized by her beauty and took her for his wife.

Most of Lakshmi's images depict her as seated on a lotus. Here, she stands on a lotus-like centre, the image beautifully modeled. The four-armed Goddess holds lotus flowers in two hands - lotus in relation to Sri- Lakshmi refers to spiritual power and purity. In the left hand, she holds the auspicious pot, which is considered to be the harbinger of good fortune and success in life. Her right hand is raised in a gesture of blessing. Her face is broad and instead of the usual youthfulness, there is an element of maturity. Embellished ornaments adorn her body to strengthen her status as the goddess of wealth. A pink halo surrounds her head as her long, flowing tresses form a halo around her body. She stands under an ornate niche.

In the foreground is an owl, known to be goddess Lakshmi's vehicle.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
