Santoshi Mata is venerated as the mother of satisfaction and joy; she is opined as the benevolent form of Goddess Durga and worshipped popularly in North India in the form of vrats, which prompt harmony and a boon of contentment. She sits here in a lotus posture on a thick pedestal, carved exquisitely, depicting two women paying obeisance to the goddess and a water kalash kept in between as a worship ritual.
Clad in a vibrant orange saree that falls loose on her torso and a contrasting green blouse, both decorated with golden motifs and border, she holds a gesture of blessing her devotees and carries a golden rice bowl, superbly carved sword and a trident in each of her other three hands; ornamented in gracious necklace set and other jewels, a thick kamarband that holds the loose pleats of her saree, tri-colored long flower garland and a sun haloed crown that glorifies her head.
The soothing expression of her eyes decorated with blue eye shadow, gentle smiling lips and the overall divine essence of her personality are some of the salient features of this pure white marble statue.
