Shri is another name for Lakshmi... There are many many legends and myths attached to her but the most incredible of these is the story of her birth.. There was once the need to churn the Celestial Oceans which had to be done by Devas, the gods and Asurs, the demons together.. so they decided to use Mount Mandar as the rod and the snake-king Vasuki as a rope for churning the ocean... this brought out beautiful riches from the bottom of the ocean.. the nectar of immortality - Amrit, was one of them and so was Shri..Shri is the consort of Lord Vishnu and her favorite flowers are thousand-petalled water lilies.. she blesses her devotees with good fortune and riches.. i loved the way her features have come out, especially the eyes which reflect the depths of the sea from which she had emerged.. The new background is my attempt to include the same blue sea in her personality.. i have taken this pic from the personal collection of my friend Vipin Kasana who has given me the permission to use it as a background for my sketches.
