The gracefully poised Lakshmi sits with her left leg tucked in and the right stretched out. A choker embraces her neck while a longer piece cascades down her breasts, shielding their tips from the eye of the beholder. and ending at her navel, performing the same function there. A picture of sophistication, her face tilts slightly, in a graceful and feminine fashion. The skill of the sculptor is evident in the deft treatment of the fingers which are slender and delicate. The two eyes are semi-closed and inward-looking, and the nose is sharp and aquiline. The gentle lips are a picture of sensuous refinement.

Lakshmi's shoulders support her four arms. Each of these hands is engaged in making a significant symbolic gesture:

The upper right hand holds a mirror, which signifies self-introspection.

The lower right hand makes the varada mudra - the gesture of giving, symbolizing Lakshmi's boon of eternal prosperity and abundance.

The upper left arm holds a vermilion pot. The vermilion is a sacred symbol of fertility and the exclusive prerogative of married women in India. No married woman will ever step out of the house without applying at least a trace of vermilion in the parting between her hair.

The lower left arm makes the Abhaya mudra, the gesture which grants the boon of fearlessness to her worshippers.

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.
