Rare life size brass Lakshmi with four arms. The two hands in the back are holding lotus in each hands. With nice brown and gold color all over her body. Beautifully and elegantly seated atop the lotus base.
Lakshmi ( lit. ’she who leads to one’s goal’), also known as Shri. She is one of the principal goddesses in Hinduism. The goddess of wealth, fortune, power, beauty, fertility and prosperity. Along with Parvati and Saraswati, she forms the Tridevi of Hindu goddesses.
In Shaktism, Lakshmi is venerated as the prosperity aspect of the Mother goddess. Lakshmi is both the consort and the divine energy (shakti) of the Hindu god Vishnu, the Supreme Being of Vaishnavism; she is also the Supreme Goddess in the sect and assists Vishnu to create, protect, and transform the universe.
Lakshmi is depicted as an elegantly dressed, prosperity-showering golden-coloured woman standing or sitting in the padmasana position upon a lotus throne. She’s holding a lotus in her hand, symbolising fortune, self-knowledge, and spiritual liberation. Her iconography shows her with four hands, which represent the four aspects of human life important to Hindu culture: dharma, kāma, artha, and moksha.
