An auspicious element in Hindu tradition, Deepalakshmi is a representation of the Goddess Lakshmi, holding a lamp or a ‘deep’ (diya) in her hands. Usually featuring a lamp that can be lit, Deeplakshmi is a symbol of good luck and prosperity, and the light that guides one in times of darkness and adversity.
Made of brass, this well detailed Deepalakshmi is a collector’s delight. Originally from South India, it has intricate carvings all over the body of the figure, and a bird sitting on the right shoulder. The base is missing, but the old collectible is otherwise in good condition.
