Lalitha Devi is one of the most powerful manifestations of Goddess
Shakti. It is believed that Goddess Lalita represents the Panchabhuta
(five basic elements) of the Universe. Panchabhutas are air, water,
fire, earth and space (Vayu, Jala, Agni, Bhumi and Akasha). In this
bronze sculpture, the goddess is holding sugarcane and weapons seated on
peta (i,e stand designed with lion and brilliant art work exhibited by
artists). The prabhavali is designed brilliantly showcasing the power of
goddess, the lion in the sculpture depicts dharya (braveness). This is
one of the amazing art work designed by artists.

Making of a Bronze Artifact
Tarang’s bronze collection is crafted in-house, using the traditional ‘Lost wax’ method.
Stage 1: The Lost Wax method is a 4-stage process of bronze casting wherein a wax mold of the statue is created initially, after which a mold is created around the wax piece.
This is then cast into a bronze mold. The Bronze mold of the artifact is a solid metal.
Stage 2: After the bronze mold of the statue is created, the additional parts of the statue such as the trunk, additional hands, etc., are created as separate molds.
Stage 3: The main statue and the additional parts are joined together and intricate carvings are rendered to the statue.
Stage 4: The artifacts are then finally polished to give the desired shine and gleam.
