Only 1 available

A former Hindu deity associated with an Indian river of the same name, Saraswati, was worshipped in Vedic times as a goddess of learning. In Brahmin India, she became the consort of Brahma and Manjushri and was considered the goddess of music and poetry. For certain Brahmin sects, she is a sister of Vishnu and, in some Buddhist sects, a female manifestation of Vairocana. Every sect has tried to appropriate this goddess who, since time immemorial, has symbolized two basic elements of all rituals for Indians: Music and poetry.

Here you can see an exquisite sculpture of the Nepalese form of Saraswati with inlay work. She is represented with two arms, playing the Veena. She is seated in a relaxed position on a lotus plinth in the lalitasana with her left leg tucked up and right leg hanging down. Her figure is slender and is ornate with dazzling jewelry

The main attraction of the sculpture is undoubtedly the inlay work.  Blue, red and turquoise gemstones have been used to create beautiful floral patterns on what can be assumed as her upper garment and dhoti. The costume is also unique in that it is very unusual for goddesses to wear full-sleeved blouses. The base of the lotus is also adorned using the same designs. The intricately carved Tiara is a sight to behold. Her face is serene as ethereal music emanates from the celestial veena she holds. The sculpture will be a great addition to your home décor and collectables.

How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?

Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.


Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.


  • Another way is to cleanse the statue with mild soap, warm water, and a cotton cloth. You must go to every inch of the statue and even to the crevices and cracks. After this, clean the article with a dry towel to wipe off pools of water left on the surface.


  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth. 


Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
