Antique Khmer Style Mounted Bronze Lakshmi / Devi Consort of Vishnu Head - 37cm/15"
Measures (Height) 37cm/15"
An antique Khmer style Lakshmi, devi or Goddess torso in the Angkor Wat style. Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage.
The embodiment of beauty, grace and charm. Also called Mahalakshmi, she is said to bring good luck, and is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows. The azure patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.
On her head Lakshmi wears a diadem and conical chignon. Jewellery adorns her neck and arms. The ears are cast with the typical Khmer tripartite scalloping of the inner rim. The traditional beauty lines on her neck emphasise her femininity.
The face displays rimmed lips, slightly cast down eyes, and eyebrows that form one continuous ridge across the forehead.
The torso has been mounted on wood plinth.
This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add a unique touch to any room of your home or workplace.

The embracing of Buddhist teachings is what makes it such good luck to bring a statue into your home. Whilst it’s definitely worth doing your research to know exactly what it is that your statue can do for you (not least so that you can make the most out of its presence), there is no such thing as bad luck from buying a Buddha statue for yourself, so long as you keep it clean and treat it with its due respect.
