Ambika sits above her stylized lion mount with a long body and with its tail curled to add support to the seated figure above. She sits with one leg pendant.  She has four arms, the back two hold stylized mango clusters and her front right hand holds a large mango.  Her left-hand cups a child seated on her left knee.  Another child stands on the base to her right.  The backing takes on a throne-like form, but she appears to float in front of it, the square-ish base is pierced and the arch of the back is surmounted by an auspicious pot form with leaves creating a volute shape to either side.  The sculpture is solid brass, but the eyes and an ornament in her headdress are inlayed with silver.<br />
