Physical description

As usual the goddess stands in the tribanga pose, holding a lotus flower in her left hand. Clearly she stood to the right of a god, the senior of two consorts. Most such images are Sri but the piled hair rather than a crown suggests this could be the senior consort of a less common god with two consorts, such as Kartikkeya. Rather crude casting, copper colour, little wear.
