Saraswati is the goddess of both wisdom and music in the Hindu Pantheon. She is venerated alike by the Buddhists and Jains. Seated here on a three-layered high lotus, she plays the veena with her main hands, while the third and fourth hold a book and rosary respectively. The veena is scrolled with vegetative motifs.

The name Saraswati comes from "saras" (meaning "flow") and "wati" (meaning "a woman"). So, Saraswati is symbol of knowledge, whose flow (or growth) is like a river.

She wears a high, towering crown typical to South Indian aesthetics. It is known as ‘karandamukuta.’ Such a headgear symbolizes the supreme status the deity enjoys in the Hindu Pantheon.

This statue was carved in the city of Salem, Tamil Nadu. The sculptor is Shri P. Sengottuvel.

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.
