Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of Wisdom, Speech and Learning and consort of Brahma the creator. She resides in the Vedic mantras and is the patroness of all types of knowledge, particularly of music. In this beautiful bronze sculpture, she is seen four-armed, sitting on a lotus pedestal, the lotus sits upon a rectangular base. She holds an Akshamala (rosary) in her upper right hand that is indicative of Manana (unbroken reflection) that is crucial to any type of learning and Pustaka (book) in her upper left hand which represents all knowledge. She plays Vina (lute) with her lower hands, which gave birth to the seven root sounds on which all music is based. There is an ornate crown upon her head fitting a goddess of her beauty and talents. Her right leg is bent in a graceful supportive manner, allowing her to keep her back straight and her left leg hangs down and rests upon the rectangular base further supporting her posture. Her facial features are well defined with strong eyebrows and almond-shaped eyes. Invite grace and knowledge into your home, office or studio with a sculpture of Saraswati!
