The Deepalakshmi that you see on this page is a superb number. A tall, finely formed figurine stands on a doubly inverted lotus pedestal. She is dressed in a silk dhoti, with a number of sashes cascading symmetrically by the graceful curves of her hips and limbs. Her upper body is layered with a world of gold adornments and a little parrot perches on her right shoulder. The gorgeous features of her face, executed with a great deal of perfection and symmetry despite the scale, are complemented by the ringlets of her thick, youthful hair. She holds forward a relatively tiny deepa that looks substantial in her delicately carved hands.
The Deepalakshmi is poised at the very centre of a tray of five lamps. They are shallow-bottomed ones that curve downwards upon a single surface (as opposed to a set of discretely formed lamps). The legs that support the ensemble are carved in the shape of peacock heads.
