This spellbinding bronze Deepalakshmi is a superfine representation of the aesthetic qualities of Hoysala artwork in which the human, especially the female body finds an alluring depiction. The lady with the lamp, Deepalakshmi is standing on the topmost section of a multi-leveled circular pedestal with several Diyas (lamps). An inverted lotus platform serves as the stage for the beauty of the bronze Deepalakshmi to be revealed. The Deepalakshmi has a well-proportioned body adorned with a regal dhoti (lower body garment), Kuchabandha (breast ornament), and a variety of ornate pieces of jewelry. Her hair is tied in a neat pleat ornamented with fineries. The youthful lady has an angelic countenance with perfect features and animated eyes framed by the curling locks of hair on her forehead. A mynah bird is perched on her left shoulder; an attribute seen in South Indian iconography. One can merely imagine the glorious scenic beauty of this superfine brass Deepalakshmi, when the multitude of diyas around her and the one in her hand is lit, creating an otherworldly divine atmosphere.

Deepalakshmi, Lakshmideepa, Kamakshi (one with lovely eyes), Amman (mother), or Pavai Vikkau (lady lamp), these terms are used to denote magnificent South Indian lady figures in sculpture, holding a large oil plate in their hands, serving as stunning oil lamps in the sanctum sanctorum of a shrine. The prefix “Lakshmi” attached to Deepa (lamp) is a generic Indian term for youthful maidens or women of the household, who are believed to embody auspiciousness and fertility, aspects related to the Goddess Lakshmi. Placed in proximity to the central deity, Deepalakshmi lamps are votives, donated by affluent devotees after fulfilling their wishes.

Standing eternally in the court of their lord, a Deepalakshmi represents the woman of the household and her unbounded gratefulness toward the god for their benevolence toward her family.
