It is believed that during the entire phases of the day, goddess Saraswati manifests through everyone’s speech, atleast once and fulfills that utterance; she is often depicted as perched on a full blooming lotus, unlike the way shown here, as sitting in lalitasana on a stylized double layered pedestal, fully decorated in red, green and blue reconstituted stones in varied patterns and styles. The sculptor has kept in mind her sleek yet sturdy figurine and carved the sculpture with the same poise and elegance. The colorful attires she is garbed in beautify her persona and her soberness with the luxurious layers of gold treasures beautifying her neck along with the matching kamarband.
Goddess Saraswati is the bestower of knowledge and wisdom; she has a perfection through all the arts. Saraswati is also worshipped by the name, Vinavandini as she is always holding a veena in her anterior hands; postured here in a sober diagonal posture with a curved thinner end. Veena is the abode of divinity and the source of happiness and when the goddess holds it, it highlights her command over the sweet music of life and complete learning. The posterior hands carry a rosary and the book of Vedas, highlighting her superiority and intelligence.
The flower aureoled crown glorified on her curly hairs is heavily carved in long multiple layers focusing on the style of South Indian temple style carvings. The blue and red decoration over the gold crown complement charmingly with her attires.
