Although a deity of great antiquity, Saraswati does not appear in art until the Kushan period. Significantly, her earliest image is a Jain dedication and depicts her as the goddess of learning with a book in her hand.

Cost in brass by the 'cire Perdue' process, goddess Saraswati is seated on a lotus. She is Brahma's Shakti and presides over and protects wisdom and the arts and who invented writing. In pre-Vedic and Vedic times, we find her venerated as the goddess of rivers. Later she evolves into the goddess of eloquence. Iconically, Saraswati appears as a four-armed goddess playing the lute-Vina, which symbolizes the arts as a whole. In one hand she holds a palm-leaf book justifying her image as Vidyadevi, the book being a symbol of wisdom and writing. Every posture of the hand is full of meaning. Her hand is in the teaching attitude (vyakhyana mudra). She is dressed in a short choli and a minutely carved lower garment. She wears an elaborate karandamukuta, which gradually tapers upwards. Behind the crown is a 'siras chakra'. This is a halo, also called prabhamandala, depicted behind the head of the goddess. It is circular with lotus petals carved on it. She is adorned with many ornaments. Numerous necklaces, earrings, bangles and anklets decorate the image.

The vina is worked upon finely. The instrument ends in the form of a fawn head, true to life with the gentle eyes. Indians feel that knowledge and enlightenment spread wherever lies the image of goddess Saraswati.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
