Ca.17th-18th century antique sandstone Indian style Lakshmi, devi or Goddess head.
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. The head has been mounted on wood plinth (later).
