Good condition

Beautiful and elegant bronze sculpture of a standing Lakshmi (Shridevi) on lotus throne with a lotus bud in her hand.
With a beautiful brown patina and very characteristic features.
India, 16th-17th century, possibly earlier
Height: 7 cm.
Weight: ca 80 grams.
Condition: good, with usual wear from use and age. See images.

Lakshmi or Shridevi is the goddess of good fortune and beauty and is one of the two main wives of Vishnu, the other is Bhudevi, the goddess of the earth. She is recognized by her breast band, the lotus bud in her left hand and her crown. In a larger group she is usually depicted to the righthand side of Vishnu. The statue was probably used in a home altar or small altar in a temple and used for personal devotion. Touching her would bring a person good luck. That is why her face and crown has such a nice, smooth patina and is slightly faded.

    Got netsuke in bubble envelope. I'm used to better packaging. Usually a seller tells the buyer when package is packed/will arrive, this seller doesn't. I did send mail after week of no news.
