"I always praise Lakshmi of golden hue"
True to her auspicious name, the artiste impeccably captures the radiant form of the goddess in golden hues with 22 carat gold foil and semi-precious stones. Her beautiful face is life-like and seems to radiate compassion and benevolence. Both her upper hands hold a lotus, the symbol of enlightenment. The lower hands are in abhaya mudra (gesture of reassurance and safety) and varadamudra (gesture symbolising bestowal of boons). Gold coins fall from her lower right hand, the symbol of prosperity. She is flanked by gajas (elephants) on either side. This divine figure is set in a dark blue background that is outlined with intricate overlaying of gold foil and colourful semi-precious stones. The gold overlay is fringed by a contrasting dark brown carved wooden frame. This Thanjavur painting will make your home or office radiate brilliance and positivity.
Renowned worldwide as one of India's greatest traditional art forms, Tanjore painting is a sought-after collectible. It even has the recognition of Geographical Indication, certifying its conformance to traditional methods, its qualities and reputation.
