Pair of Deep lakshmi - 30 cm tall
This is a magnificent pair of 30 cm tall brass sculpture of Lakshmi, Hindu goddess of wealth, fertility, abundance, and well-being and depicted here as Deepa Lakshmi carrying a single diya or oil lamp standing on a round floral shaped pedestal with a beautifully crafted peacock perched on each shoulder .
Handcrafted by skilled artisans from the south of India, Lakshmi is seen here with her sensuous feminine beauty which is timeless with her exquisite slim figure and draped garbierre, intricate jewellery, head dress and elegant coiffure with fine engravings.
The goddess is a harbinger of good fortune and her countenance bespeaks of deep inner peace, a reflection of Santosha - Sanskrit for the deep contentment that is our innate nature and is the gift of the gods and goddesses.
When the sun goes down at the end of the day, its the light or 'Prakash' of the deep that provides us the wealth of brightness or Lakshmi bringing joy, celebration, knowledge and life signifying the 'ray of light' inspiring us towards progress.
Size: 30 cm tall . Diameter of pedestal is 10 cm
Weight: 5.8 kilograms for the pair.
