Product description: Goddess Saraswathi, the consort of Brahma the creator, is worshipped as the Goddess of learning, wisdom, speech, music and art. The name Saraswathi means "flowing water", "possessing water", and as the name suggests she is one of the early Aryan rivers called the Saraswathi river that flows from the Himalayas and is considered a sacred river like the Ganges. Goddess Saraswathi is portrayed seated on a white lotus, wearing a white saree which depicts purity and peace, and Swan is said to be her vahana. The musical instrument in her hand is called "Saraswathi veena" which was named after her, also known as the "Raghunatha veena" used in Carnatic Indian classical music. Saraswathi puja is celebrated on the last day of Navarathiri by offering garlands of white flowers, fruits and books to get the blessings of the divine mother.
The bronze statue depicts Saraswathi seated in lalitasana pose ( (one leg folded inwards and the other leg hanging down) on a fully bloomed inverted lotus. She is four-armed with her rear hands each holding a bead string and a palm leaf script, and the front two hands are holding and playing the Veena. She is adorned with artistically designed vastram, beautiful jewelries, a richly decorated crown, and has a smiling expression on her face which is certainly admirable.The prabhavali (the arch) behind the statue carries intricate details throughout, and has a Kirtimukha face at the top. The prabhavali and Veena are removable pieces from the statue.The statue of bronze Saraswathi is one of a kind statue made with amazing details using the lost-wax method; an expert craftsmanship by our South Indian bronze artisan.
