Superfine Devi Saraswati

(Rated 5.0)

unlike her usual iconography of sitting in laitasana posture with the veena in her two hands, this wooden sculpture depicts the Goddess in a dancing posture on a stylized double lotus pedestal supported by a thick circular base and her left leg is placed at an angle of 90 degrees supported by the right leg. Devi Saraswati is revered as the beholder of great knowledge, wisdom, art, speech and learning. Her divine beauty and grace are realistically captured in this sculpture, as can be identified by the soothing expression of her eyes and the delicacy of her smile. Saraswati is interpreted as ‘the one who realizes the essence of self’ and is a personification of the pure Saraswati River.

Carved here in superfine teak wood by expert artists from South India; she is garbed in an ankle length dhoti, decorated with horizontally styled layers of beads and a flower patch on her knees that complements with the stylized fitted patches of the blouse on her chest and ornated with lustrous beaded necklaces, big karnaphool, bracelets, armlets and anklets. The kamarband is carved in magnificent floral patterns with the long frills hanging at the sides. The long crown that glorifies on her head is carved in an appreciating South Indian style with traditional floral coils followed by a mesh that points at the top.

This chaturbhuja deity holds her veena symbolizing music, vertically in her left front hand and the right one carries a pen, while the posterior hands are sculpted with a book symbolizing knowledge and a rosary respectively. The swan sitting near her feet is Saraswati’s mount signifying moksha and spiritual perfection, therefore she is also called as Hamsavahini. The peacock on the right side of pedestal symbolizes colorful splendour and dance; in popular Jain iconography, Saraswati Maa is shown with a peacock as her mount. The self-textured beauty and glow of this sculpture adds-on to her charm.
