Wife of Lord Vishnu, the Lord of srshti (creative projection). She is the presiding deity over all that has got to do with resource and wealth, Her domain indispensable to His function. In this glamorous bronze murti handpicked from Swamimalai, Devi Lakshmi is depicted in a rudimentary siddhasana on a lotus pedestal. She is chaturbhujadhari, one who is possessed of (‘dhari’) four (‘chatur’) arms (‘bhuja’): in the posterior hands a pair of lotuses, the anterior ones held in generous blessing.

Her padmasana (lotus-throne) is poised above a solid platform. The same is supported by a dense network of thick, engraved vines that are curving upwards, seemingly holding up the composition. The central Devi Lakshmi figure is Herself surrounded by a similarly thick network of similar vines, contained as She is within their luxuriance. It forms a three-dimensional aureole around Her, projecting around Her a sacred precinct. The same has been finished with precision and perfect symmetry.

Indeed, such a work as this commands as much skill as shraddha to be made. The handsome, angularly-cut features of Devi Lakshmi are accentuated by the ample adornments on Her body. Her dhoti held in place by a girdle of gold, breasts clasped in a breast-band, and layered necklaces all the way from Her decolletage down to below the navel. Along the plane of Her tall crown are perched a pair of peacocks within the vines that surround Her, while elephants with raised trunks flank Her throne.
