    Dhanya Lakshmi is depicted in green garments, symbolizing the greenery and freshness of grain-filled agricultural land. Green is the color of growth, renewal and rebirth.

She is an eight armed goddess who carries paddy crop, sugarcane and bananas in three of her hands, representing bountiful of food. She holds two lotuses in two of her hands and a mace in another. Her two hands are in abhaya mudra and varada mudra each. Through abhaya mudra, she protects her devotees from hunger as this gesture is made to provide safety and dispel fear.
