The gracious Goddess Saraswati, who along with Goddesses Parvati and Lakshmi, forms the divine triad known as the ‘Tridevi’, is the divine consort of Lord Brahma. She is known as Vidyadatri, meaning the Goddess who provides knowledge, and is the feminine energy representing the Rajas Guna (mode of passion), thus, assists Lord Brahma to create the material world.
In this handmade bronze sculpture, Goddess Saraswati can be seen dancing on a beautiful pedestal with its top in the shape of an upturned lotus. She is surrounded by a magnificent arch of appealing motifs and designs; on the bottom of the arch, two Peacocks are standing atop the pedestal on either side that symbolize the celebration of dance. The four-armed Goddess carries a musical instrument called Veena in the front left arm, the right hand holds the gesture of Abhay Mudra (fearlessness), the rear right hand carries a rosary, and the left hand carries a book.
She is embellished with heavy and long chains and neckpieces around her neck that cover her bare chest. She is wearing a close-fitting silk dhoti down to her ankles that reveals the shape of her long elegant legs. The right foot is slightly raised from the base of the pedestal, while the left leg is raised in the air and folded inwards. The shape of her thin waist forms a slight S-curve, making the movements of her dance look fascinating. The tall basket-shaped crown on her head describes her position as the Goddess of music, learning and knowledge of the Absolute Truth.
