The iconographies of each of the deities are replete with unmistakable details. The twin lotuses in the posterior hands of Devi Lakshmi, the chubby belly of Lord Ganesha scarcely held in place by the naga (snake), and the long slender-necked veena in the gracious hands of Devi Sarasvati. The Devis are seated in ardha-padmasanas, while their brother is seated in His usual childlike stance. A sharply curving aureole frames the central Ganesha figure, at the zenith of which is the all-encompassing Kirtimukham motif.
