The Nepalese iconography of Devi Sarasvati is distinct from Her image as She is worshipped southwards in the Hindu-majority subcontinent. The murti that you see on this page is characterised by long, angular lines, which make for sharp, irresistible curves of form. This applies to the roopa of Sarasvati from the thinly etched eyes on Her face to Her expressively poised limbs.


The bitone colour palette lends a great deal of solemnity to the sculpture. The Devi’s skin is exposed down the face and the torso, as well as the arms and half the forelegs from under the hems of Her silken dhoti. It is a washed-out black colour, blocked by the metallic gold of the adornments on Her body and the dhoti.


Speaking of adornment, the crown with the single predominant spire and the elaborate, vine-like karnakundalas are hallmarks of Nepalese iconography. So is the finesse of Her hands and feet. From the way She holds Her veena to the delicate angle of Her spinal column, everything about this Sarasvati murti is replete with a lifelike quality.
