Most religions have found expression in some way in visual imagery. Imagery is the tangible expression resulting from perception of form, color etc., representation of perceptual experience providing a store of raw material for the imagination.

Brahma is the lord of wisdom and his wife Saraswati is goddess of music and wisdom, mother of the Vedas, and inventor of the Devanagari alphabet. In pre-Vedic and Vedic times, we find her venerated as the goddess of rivers. Later she evolves into the goddess of eloquence and then into a goddess seated by the side of the great Brahma as his shakti.

The goddess is seated in a scenic setting, her head slightly tilted. In one hand she holds the vina, a stringed instrument which symbolizes the arts as a whole and in the other hand a bundle of manuscripts, a symbol of wisdom and writing. She wears an ornate crown studded with precious stones. Around the head is a halo with rays. From grand earrings to gold anklets, she is bedecked in jewelry. She wears rich clothes with a flowing odhini. She rests her feet on the swan, her particular mount and a characteristic sign.

The landscape in the painting is very rich and contributes to its composition. The white/lilac clouds provide a color relief to an otherwise bright colored painting. Hills and mountains can be seen in the distance. Closer in the background are sheafs of corns swaying in the wind. The swan is in a pond with lotus leaves, buds and full bloomed lotus flowers.

Goddess Saraswati looks charming and graceful. The composition is pleasant and establishes a feeling of balance and continuity between different contents.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
