My Quest to Identify this Goddess Charm
Quite a few years ago, I bought a crystal suncatcher, and hanging off the very bottom of the creation was this goddess (almost 100% sure it is goddess not god - boobs!) which I removed and put aside.
I recently threaded it onto a bag or phone charm clip, and would like to sell it, but have had a terrible time trying to identify her. Most Hindu and Indian goddesses have more then one set of arms... though they are sometimes depicted with just two arms. Although I am familiar with the numerous goddesses and avatars, it seems there is no way to be certain who is depicted in this charm unless I created her myself! I have also considered that she may be influenced by Thai, or other far eastern cultures.
I thought she may be a depiction of Lakshmi with two arms, or perhaps Krishna, but I am not satisfied to guess.
If she can be identified I can include a lot of information about her otherwise.... all is up in the air.
Does anyone have any ideas about my mystery goddess?
