Vintage Hindu Goddess Lakshmi in Wood Frame

Referred to in India as “god photographs”, colorful mass-produced images of the Hindu gods are seen everywhere – on rickshaws and bicycles, nailed to tree shrines, on the dashboards of taxis and in Hindu homes and tea shops. Hung with marigolds and viewed through incense, worshipers believe the pictures are instrumental in achieving darshan, or direct contact with the divine.


The image pictured is the Hindu goddess Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual. Lakshmi is the household goddess of most Hindu families, and a favorite of women.


This vintage devotional artwork has gone through many monsoons (with months of humidity), so it has some staining and discoloration, along with dings in the frame, that come with daily use and age.
