Square image of two goddesses: Siddha Lakshmi appears seated on a lotus flower. She has pink skin and is dressed in a saffron costume with abundant jewelry. She holds a cup to her mouth while her other hand holds a lotus bud. She is addressed by the dark-skinned Kali, who stands to her left, dressed in a red skirt and holding a jar. The figures appear a flat background of dark red-brown with a strip of cloudy sky above and the arched edges of a dark gray lotus pond below. The image is surrounded by bright red borders.
