The name Saraswati comes from "saras" (meaning "flow") and "wati" (meaning "a woman"). So, Saraswati is symbol of knowledge, whose flow (or growth) is like a river.
She wears a high, towering crown typical to South Indian aesthetics. It is known as ‘karandamukuta.’ Such a headgear symbolizes the supreme status the deity enjoys in the Hindu Pantheon.
This statue was carved in the city of Salem, Tamil Nadu. The sculptor is Shri P. Sengottuvel.
