Description Lakshmi is radiant!  Her expression is warm and loving open to all her devotees.  She holds two lotus flowers as well as a coin in her open left hand.  It is believed that by taking Lakshmi into your home and heart you are also inviting wealth in as well.  The artist decorated her dress with beautiful colorful designs.  The lotus flower base she is seated upon is colored pink with a small elephant kneeling down at her foot.  Lakshmi embodies the loving aspect of Mother Devi in this sculpture.

About Makrana White Marble:  Makrana marble is regarded as being the oldest marble in age and the finest quality.  Makrana marble is named after a small town in Rajasthan, India where it is mined.  Artists have always sought out makrana marble because of its pure white color and its hardness.  Makrana marble was made famous for its use as the principle stone in the building of the Taj Mahal.  In sculpture the marble is often hand painted in vibrant colors giving a beautiful contrast to the pure white of the marble.
About Lakshmi
"Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot, delighted by songs on lustful elephants, bedecked with lotuses, pearls and gems, lustrous as fire, radiant as gold, resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon, mistress of cows and horses - take away poverty and misfortune bring joy, riches, harvest and children."

Draped in red saree, bedecked with gold ornaments, seated on a lotus, pot in hand, flanked by white elephants, the image of Lakshmi adorns most Hindu homes and business establishments.

Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, fortune, power, luxury, beauty, fertility, and auspiciousness.  She holds the promise of material fulfillment and contentment.  She is described as restless, whimsical yet maternal, with her arms raised to bless and to grant her blessings.

Shri is the sacred name of Lakshmi.  Shri is written atop most documents and spoken before addressing a god, teacher holy man or any revered individual.  The word evokes grace, affluence abundance, auspiciousness and authority.  When the word is spoken or written an aura of holiness is established.  Whatever follows is imbued with divine blessing.  Just as the word "Om" is associated with the mystical side of life, Shri is associated with the material side of existence.

Lakshmi represents the beautiful and bountiful aspect of nature.  As Bhoodevi, the earth-goddess, she nurtures life; as Shreedevi, the goddess of fortune, she bestows power, pleasure and prosperity on those who deserve her grace.  To realize her, one must respect the laws of life and appreciate the wonders of existence.
