This is a finely gilt, wooden carved door panel, with a central figure of a four-armed Gaja Lakshmi seated on a lotus throne. She is flanked by elephants, who lustrate her from water pots carried in their trunks. Surrounding the elephants is swirling foliage, within which are fruiting vines and a pair of parrots.
Gaja Lakshmi, the lady of the lotus, also known as Sri, Padma and Kamala, is the consort of Vishnu. She is also considered to be the goddess of wealth and prosperity. She is Vishnu’s eternal shakti or energy and leads one to final liberation. She is thought to be the very root and essence of the universe. When she is flanked by two elephants which are showering holy water on her, she is known as Gaja Lakshmi. Elephants are symbols of stability, wealth and prosperity in Indian art.
The size of this beautiful panel is 41.7 x 1.7 x 9 inches. The size with the stand is 41.7 x 4.3 x 11.4 inches.
