The murti that you see on this page is replete with the elements of Devi Sarasvati’s traditional iconography. Silken saree, ample gold and jewels on Her torso and limbs, and a solid gold crown that towers high above Her head, from the rim of which cascades Her golden hair down the nape of Her neck. A superb halo pervades the space behind Her head, engraved with gentle flames and a ring of golden beads within.
Zoom in on the calm, beauteous face of Devi Sarasvati. Her soft, feminine features are engraved in a perfectly symmetrical, round-shaped face. Wisdom - nay, omniscience - pours forth from the same. The murti features an unusual pedestal carved to resemble a snatch of the stream through which the swan is wading.
