The Deepalakshmi is a recurrent image in Indian socialising. She is a tall, young devi, formed in the best proportions of prakrti. She is called Lakshmi, because She is the very picture of auspiciousness and plenty. The ‘deepa’ prefix is because She holds up a source of light in Her hands; which, in this case, is a large single dia. Her stance is one of welcome and wishing well, which is why She is to be found with Her twin gracing the entrances to Indian offices, temples, and homes.
This pair of Deepalakshmis would be a great pick for your space. These beauties have their short curls thrown back on their shoulders, their composure of countenance in keeping with the warmth and good cheer of their station. The same is set off by the statement-making ring on each of their noses. Ample shringar graces their bare torsos, complemented by the classical headband and the kundalas in their ears. With their plump amulet-clad arms, they hold forth a wide-base lamp to welcome your guests.
Their long legs are clothed in heavy, brocaded silk. Zoom in on the same to appreciate the complex handiwork that has gone into it, the precision of the finish, and the flawless symmetry of the work. The small delicate feet of the ladies bear the weight of thick pearl anklets. Both are placed on identical, inverted-lotus pedestals, which are a staple of Indian sculptural tradition.
