Title: Maa Lokkhi , commissioned piece
(Bengali school rendition of the Goddess of Wealth Maa Lakshmi)
Size: 35 cm x 45 cm
Medium: Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas

The jewellery and crown is rendered along the lines of traditional temple jewellery.
The owl comes back as the vahana as I did this for a Bengali collector.
This was the photo of an antique basara pearl nose ring
that I used as reference for painting the Goddess's ornament.
I found this beautiful piece here.
