Lakshmi is regarded as the Goddess of wealth and good fortune in Hinduism. She is the consort of Lord Vishnu and is said to have taken different forms in order to be with him in each of his incarnations.
According to the scriptures and paintings that have come down from ancient times, if the Goddess Lakshmi travels alone she travels on a Uallu (owl). If she travels with Lord Vishnu she travels on the Garuda (Eagle).
Lakshmi, like many Hindu deities, is often photo as a beautiful Indian woman with big dark eyes and with four arms. Clad in sari, in a form that is very feminine and full, she sits or stands on her lotus pink throne. She usually has two lotuses in either of her back hands. Her front arms typically offer a protective blessing, as well as blessings known as "boons," or favors from the God.
