A former Hindu deity associated with an Indian river of the same name, Saraswati, was worshipped in Vedic times as a goddess of learning. In Brahmin India, she became the consort of Brahma and Manjushri and was considered the goddess of music and poetry. For certain Brahmin sects, she is a sister of Vishnu and, in some Buddhist sects, a female manifestation of Vairocana. Every sect has tried to appropriate this goddess who, since time immemorial, has symbolized two basic elements of all rituals for Indians: Music and poetry.

Here you can see an exquisite sculpture of the Nepalese form of Saraswati with inlay work. She is represented with two arms, playing the Veena. She is seated in a relaxed position on a lotus plinth in the lalitasana with her left leg tucked up and right leg hanging down. Her figure is slender and is ornate with dazzling jewelry

The main attraction of the sculpture is undoubtedly the inlay work.  Blue, red and turquoise gemstones have been used to create beautiful floral patterns on what can be assumed as her upper garment and dhoti. The costume is also unique in that it is very unusual for goddesses to wear full-sleeved blouses. The base of the lotus is also adorned using the same designs. The intricately carved Tiara is a sight to behold. Her face is serene as ethereal music emanates from the celestial veena she holds. The sculpture will be a great addition to your home décor and collectables.
