The myths and legends prevalent among the indigenous people form an important factor in their art. These often stimulate dramatic intensity resulting in distortions and exaggerations.

Saraswati, the goddess depicted here with multiple hands is the consort of Brahma. Reference to her appears in the Vedas and she is honored by Hindus and Jains alike. She is described and likewise painted here: as white as snow, and her transcendent nature is suggested by her vehicle the swan. Later Vedic literature associates Saraswati with the spoken word and she becomes known as the goddess of speech. Here not only does she hold the Vedas in her hand but aids to meditation and various kinds of weapons in her numerous hands. She is also depicted holding a veena. In time, she came to represent poetry, music and all intellectual pursuits. Saraswati's connection with literature and knowledge is the reason for her popularity in Jain temples.

She is depicted here, wearing elaborate jewellery and a magnificent crown. Her face has a halo around it and a garland of flowers encircling the halo. More often, Saraswati is depicted with four hands but the artist has multiplied her arms to depict power. Her this manifestation is referred to as Mahasaraswati (literally: Greater Saraswati), and encompasses her complete cycle of functions, as exemplified in the diverse range of implements held in her hands.
