She, along with her mount, the great white owl, descends to Earth and takes away the
darkness of poverty, stagnation, anger, and laziness from our lives.
Her 'vahana', the white owl, is that it represents the royalties and riches, which always serve at her feet; and over whom she has full control.
She is also referred to as 'pranadayini '(giver of life-sustaining energy).
She wears ornaments of gold and a ruby-studded golden crown. Her hair is long, dark and wavy. She holds a pot of gold with her left arm and a crop of rice in her hand.''
This is an image of a traditional Bengali depiction of Lakhsmi Devi.
