Standing elegantly on a lotus pedestal, the goddess looks deserving of
veneration. Being placed on a lotus suggests her transcendence of the
physical world. Although rooted in mud, the lotus perfects itself in a
blossom that has transcended the mud. Elegantly dressed and adorned in the
most exquisite jewellery, she does look divine. She wears a tall
karandamukuta, with a prabhavali behind. Four hands, two normal and two
emanating from the elbows hold the attributes, vina and a book. The former
associates her with the musical arts and the latter with learning in
Despite being cast in brass, there is still delicacy in the tapering
fingers, the intricacy of design in her garments and intriguingly, an air of
divine abstraction in her face.
