Welcoming Laxmi & Vishnu

Khmer Bronze Statue Idol Vishnu Laxmi Pair

Just look at the great detail in their textiles and ornaments!

The goddess’s skirt – Sampot?

 

And the male costume:

And all the ornaments!

Khmer Bronze Statue Idol Vishnu Laxmi Pair

In one of my early notes on Khmer Styles (written in 2012) photos of Angkor Wat show identical styles of clothing and ornaments. See note here.

***

They say the arrival of Goddess Laxmi is a sign of the arrival of wealth.

But in my little world, the art in this piece is the wealth … so this is IT .. this IS the destination.

Come enjoy the Khmer bronze idol of Goddess Laxmi & her husband Vishnu here on wovensouls.com
