Buy Vishnu-Lakshmi In The Glory Of Their Togetherness Made of White Marble by Exotic Indiaby Kapil Goel Director
The smoothness and whiteness of marble make it a fit medium for devotional art. The lovely Vishnu-Lakshmi looks their part in this statement marble sculpture. The tall, slender figurines stand on miniscule pedestals of lotuses in full bloom. Strategic usage of a rich, gold colour adds coherence to the otherwise monotone composition. They are the preserver couple - the Lord Vishnu presides over preserving what has been created; His wife, the Devi Lakshmi, presides over the resources required to accomplish the divine process.
The chaturbhujadhari Lord Vishnu is in a silken dhoti, the
hem of which grazes His feet. The angavastram floats about Him as He raises one
of the anterior hands in blessing. In the other He holds, but not wields, a
gada; the characteristic chakra and conch in the hands of His posterior arms. The
crown on His haloed head and the shringar that graces His torso match those of
His wife’s, the beauteous Devi Lakshmi’s.
Her saree is cinched at the waist by a distinctive kamarband, from which descends a series of pleats (this is in keeping with Her Lord’s attire). She raises the same hand as His in blessing; in the other, She cradles a pristine lotus. A striking likeness is to be found in their composure of countenance, which is one of superlative consciousness and bliss.
