One of the primordial divinities and beholder of beauty sculpted in her most elegant gestures and a slender figurine highlighting her feminist aspects. Goddess Saraswati embodies knowledge, art, and wisdom, representing the river of consciousness that enlivens creation. The shape, style, and curves of her lotus throne depict an essence of realism as if a real blooming lotus is hardened to form a brass statue. Although perched in her bog-standard posture, her sharp curves and fine moves accentuate her godly beauty.
Garbed in a super flowy Marathi style sari with the dhoti forming constant pleats reaching upto ankle and ornamented with precious radiating jewels all over her body; her four hands symbolically mirror her husband Brahma’s four heads; the anterior hands hold a marvellously carved musical instrument, veena, signifying her hold of creative arts and sciences while rear hands carry an aksmala (rosary) and the universal book of Vedas respectively.
Keeping aside the iconography, another thing that flaunts her beauty here is the richly carved flower aureoled crown and mesmerized expressions that glorify her persona.
