Saraswati has always been venerated as the goddess of learning and music. She is alternately portrayed either as Brahma's consort or his daughter. The prominent themes in her appearance are purity and transcendence.

Here, the artist deviates from the white attire to red. In essence, he departs not only from color but from symbolism as well - white represents limpidness whereas red stands for vigor and auspices. The artist does not confine himself to rigid iconography and portrays her in the regional look, to which, people can easily relate.

Seated in an ornamental boat, she holds the veena, strumming it gently. Instead of the multi layered traditional jewelry, she is adorned with an exquisite tiara, strands of pearl strings and a couple of bracelets. Her long overflowing hair is held together at the nape.

Seated at a lower level is her devotee, clad in an austere yellow sari, her hair coiled at the nape, ornamented with flowers.

The background has undulating hills and a temple built on a high-rise rock. The vast expanse of the sky is clear. The foreground does not really relate with the background, where we see a lotus pond and a swan, both associated with Saraswati.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
