The aesthetic beauty of this brass sculpture reminds one of the dynamic lines of the Hoysala style. Standing in tribhanga posture on a lotus pedestal, the goddess exudes the divinity she is known for. Wearing an intricately carved lower garment, held at the waist by a broad waist belt, Saraswati's torso remains bare, but for exquisite necklaces that instantly catch attention. She wears an elaborate crown, together with a prabhavali with a lotus design; her earrings hang down to the neck; the armlets, bracelets and anklets complete the bejeweled look. Saraswati plays the veena held in two arms. In one of her hands she holds a lotus symbolic of asceticism and a manuscript in the other. The smile on her face reflect tranquillity and transcendence.
The artist has managed to combine beauty, perfection and grace in this one work.
