Possessed of the veena, the Devi Sarasvati is instantly recognisable. She is the presiding deity over learning and the fine arts; She is the very image of the Indian aesthetic (sundaram) ideal. As such, the classical musical instrument is indispensable to Her iconography. In the murti that you see on this page, She places the right anterior hand on its belly, while with the left She cradles its long, slender neck (She is the chaturbhujadharini, possessed of four arms, as is the norm in Her iconography independent of Brahma).


As beauteous and sweet as the veena She plays, Sarasvati is the fairest of the Hindu devi pantheon. Here She sits on an upturned lotus-shaped throne. Her legs are in lalitasana, flanked by a pair of front-facing peacocks. The ensemble described heretofore is poised upon a high plinth whose edges are latticeworked along one tier and uniformly engraved along another.


An elongated prabhavali (aureole) frames the gentle, seated figurine. At its zenith is the ferocious, partially jawless Kirtimukham. Because Kirtimukham belongs to a completely different aesthetic than Sarasvati, His presence in this murti serves to bring out the same.
