This adorable, fascinating Tanjore style art piece depicts Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity (both material and spiritual). She is the wife and active energy of Vishnu.Her four hands represent the four goals of human life considered important to the Hindu way of life-dharma, kama, artha, and moksha.Lakshmi is also called Sri or Thirumagal because she is endowed with six auspicious and divine strength even to Vishnu.Since the right side of the body symbolizes activity, a lotus in the back right hand conveys the idea that one must perform all duties in the world in accordance with dharma.The two elephants standing next to the Goddess symbolize the name and fame associated with worldly wealth.
