Lakshmi is believed to be dwelling in these places :
1. on the kumbhasthala of an elephant
2. on the base of a lotus
3. in bilwa leaf (she has created that tree)
4. go prushtam ( on the rear of an indian cow)
5. suvasini / sumangali's forehead ( the place where she applies the sindhoor.

hence the pictures show her sitting in a padmasana posture on a lotus.
