Everything that is associated with the Devi Sarasvati is dynamic. She is aesthetics in motion; Her very name conveys the sound of a flowing riverine stream. Wife to none other than the Lord Brahma Himself, She presides over knowledge and learning, which are prerequisites to His divine function of preserving the universe. Because the pursuit of knowledge remains incomplete without the accompaniment of the arts, She is also a great musical proficient and always carries a veena, without which Her iconography is incomplete. This brass Sarasvati is replete with beauty and iconographic precision, the figure of the Devi seated in lalitasana on a slender pedestal of two blooming lotuses with the pistils together.
Complementing the unusual make of the pedestal is the towering crown on Her head. Zooming in on the same would allow you to truly appreciate its ornate beauty. Her face is engraved with complex, lifelike curves that convey a composure of divine calm and wisdom. The rest of Her superb, lithe form is bedecked with lusciously draped silks and jewel-studded gold. The veena that She is strumming on looks like a goad, the weapon of choice of Indian deities with which to fight adharma. What is most unusual about this stately Sarasvati sculpture is the bunch of silken pleats that emerge from the rim of the pedestal, indicating that its femininity.
