Vijayalakshmi is shown here, not as a passive goddess, but one driven by action. Vijayalakshmi is the goddess of victory, her instruments include a sword, noose, lotus, discus, conch, and two hands in mudras (symbolic hand gestures). The eyes alight with a simmering rage and head turned slightly upwards with pride. She is poised with the grace of a goddess and ferocity of a warrior. Gold coins drop from her Varada mudra hand replenishing wealth, light, fruits to the earth and its beings. Flanked by two royal elephants and her Vahana (mount), the owl, Vijayalakshmi is the epitome of glory.

A line drawing illustration was later digitally painted, then printed on a 4x4ft canvas.
The print was then highlighted with acrylic paints.
Kanjeevaram silk fabric was used for the saree and painted metals for jewellery and coins.
Sword and chakra were laser cut and added as the final layer.
