Description Narasimha is the 4th avatar or incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Here he is depicted seated with the wife of Vishnu Lakshmi seated on his lap. In each of Vishnu's incarnations Lakshmi has accompanied Vishnu on his journeys. Narasimha has his right hand held up in the abhaya mudra or "fear not" hand position. He holds a conch and discus, two symbols associate with Vishnu. Lakshmi holds a lotus flower which is a symbol of beauty, prosperity and fertility. The pair are seated on a raised platform with an arch surrounding them. Mahakala or "great time" lurks above them in silent repose.
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.
