The celebration of all things fluid, the word 'Saraswati' in Sanskrit means '(feminine) one who flows', like a river. The Vedic concept of reality is indeed riverine: all nature is in flux, and in the ephemeral lies the essential. Hence Saraswati is the deity that presides over life itself, the very picture of its aspects that are characterised by fluidity. Language comes to mind; so do song and music and dance. In due course of time, Saraswati began to be associated with learning and the arts. She is the devi of wisdom and scientific temper, mother of the Vedas (Vedamata), mistress of music (the performing arts), and the muse of poets and painters.
In this luxuriantly inlaid brass statue, the devi's celestial form has been portrayed with considerable precision. She is standing on an inverted lotus pedestal, which is typical of iconography of the east, but the richly coloured inlay of each petal and the complex work along the rim of the base render this one-of-a-kind. The intricacies of Her raiment are indicated by variation in the inlay. Her shringar is replete with generous proportions of gold - emerging from Her lobes, across Her gracious torso, dangling on Her arms and wrists and delicate ankles. Indeed She is the wife of Brahma Himself: Her realm (knowledge) is the precursor to His creative prowess. She strums with Her lovely hands an exquisite veena.
Her silvery fair complexion is highly characteristic of Her. She exudes a halo that shines behind Her shy tresses bunched up behind Her head. A towering crown, its sumptuous inlaid beauty in keeping with the rest of the murti, is balanced on top. The handsome features of Her face, Her divine brow exude superlative wisdom and bliss.
