KOLHAPUR-MAHALAKSHMI

This description is reproduced by the Ruparatna and Rupamandan (Circa 1500 A.D.) with some slight alterations. It is to be noted that discrepancies exist between the above descriptions and the state of the present image.

The bowl is held in the lower left and not in the lower right hand, the shriphal is replaced by the mahalinga and it is the lower right hand that holds it. Similarly no mention of the nagahood occurs in the Vishvakarmashastra descriptions. However, the date of this Devi-mahatmya is uncertain. The Nityakarmasamgraha. a compilation of the late medieval period repeats this description in all its main aspects.
