Painted in the sublime Kangra idiom, this exquisite watercolor painting presents goddess Ganga, surrounded by her sacred waters, dressed in pristine white, in a powerful four-armed form. A large matsya (fish) is Devi Ganga's mount, carrying her divine presence on the water body painted in a curve- a possible visual cue to the globular earth, which is eternally purified by Maa Ganga.
An open sky, high-rising mountains, and lush forests fill the ambiance around the goddess, symbolic of the life forms enriched by her. Three distinctive images- the Shiva linga, a red-necked bird found in the vicinity of Ganga, and a basket of fruits fill the beautiful pink border of the painting. Glowing like a universal mother, this form of goddess Ganga fills the heart with reverence for the cosmic Moksha-Dayini.
