13″ Deepalakshmi in Mayura-Prabhavali In Brass | Handmade | Made In India
This brilliantly conceived brass-statue, the light being the theme and the worlds of humans and animals emerging from, represents a rare form of Deepalakshmi, the courier of divine light and the destroyer of darkness. Appropriate to an image in which aestheticism and auspicious combine the Deepalakshmi statue has been framed within a fire-arch with two peacock forms comprising its arms, known in the tradition as Mayura-Prabhavali. The proper image of Deepalakshmi: a female form with celestial beauty in the tradition of divine imagery, and the harbinger of light, the basis of the very life on the cosmos, has been installed on a circular disc laid on an inverted lotus placed in the centre of a large lamp. The lamp itself has in the centre a circular platform to hold on it the lotus seat. Whatever, this lamp is the real stage of the drama and it is in its context that the entire statue is seen and interpreted.
