On A Tray of Lamps, The Graceful Deepalakshmi With A Lamp In Her Hands
$895.00
The Deepalakshmi is a warm, inviting figure. Formed in the image of the beauteous Devi Lakshmi, she is designed to be placed at the entrance where her welcoming stance would please visitors to your home or office. The word ‘deepa’ refers to the handheld Indian lamp which is lit with ghee, a symbol of light and vidya and all things sattvik. The deepa is integral to the chhavi (image) of the Deepalakshmi, which explains her name; as such, with her very presence she brings into your home a world of sattva.

The Deepalakshmi that you see on this page is a superb number. A tall, finely formed figurine stands on a doubly inverted lotus pedestal. She is dressed in a silk dhoti, with a number of sashes cascading symmetrically by the graceful curves of her hips and limbs. Her upper body is layered with a world of gold adornments and a little parrot perches on her right shoulder. The gorgeous features of her face, executed with a great deal of perfection and symmetry despite the scale, are complemented by the ringlets of her thick, youthful hair. She holds forward a relatively tiny deepa that looks substantial in her delicately carved hands.

The Deepalakshmi is poised at the very centre of a tray of five lamps. They are shallow-bottomed ones that curve downwards upon a single surface (as opposed to a set of discretely formed lamps). The legs that support the ensemble are carved in the shape of peacock heads.
