There is fairly a large variety of Lakshmighat in West Bengal
, mostly done in twos, one for Lakshmi and another for Ganesha. These are found in all districts.
Of these, Tamluk Lakshmi-ghats are most decorative and beautiful. Goddess Lakshmi
's face is shaped on the upper fringe of the vase, with sharply drawn eyes and crest, and the trunk of Lord Ganesha
in the other vase is also fine. In Raghunathbari the vases are placed like bowls on an earthen stand which looks like a wine-cup. The Jhargram-type is perhaps the simplest one, with a little long neck marked with two dots for eyes. It has a look of tribal simplicity. Rest of the vases in the different localities mentioned above are of varying shapes and sizes, without any distinctive features like those of Tamluk and Raghunathbari.
