Dancing Devi Sarasvati, Under A Canopy Teeming With Life

Dancing Devi Sarasvati, Under A Canopy Teeming With Life

Dancing Devi Sarasvati, Under A Canopy Teeming With Life

The Devi Sarasvati dances to the music of Her own veena. She is Haripriya (‘Hari’ is another name of Lord Vishnu; ‘priya’, the Sanskrt word for favourite), wife of Lord Vishnu, presiding deity over learning and the fine arts. This explains why the veena is an indispensable element of Her iconography, just like in this standing wooden panel crafted after the style of South Indian temple architecture of yore. In fact, the spring in Her stance and motion of Her form set this apart from your run-of-the-mill Devi Sarasvati murtis.

On the soft belly of a gigantic lotus rests the single foot of a laterally bent leg. The other is raised mid-air, while Her curvaceous hips jut out sharply sidewards. Clearly the sculptor has captured Her amidst a gracious dance routine. The chaturbhujadharini (four-armed) Devi holds a rosary and a scrolled up pothi in Her posterior hands; with Her anterior left hand She cradles the slender neck of Her instrument, while the right She rests upon its bosom. Her beauteous face is framed by a pair of gold karnakundalas, a mass of jet black tresses cascading down Her back, and a multi-tiered crown tapering upwards in keeping with traditional Southern iconography.

A dense, gorgeously coloured network of vines constitutes the Devi’s aureole. Birds of richly coloured plumage and luscious fruits nestle amidst the soft, nourishing verdure. Zoom in on the same in order to appreciate the precision and attention to detail prevailing in the composition.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
