Saraswati, the goddess of learning, music and art, also known as Vak, Vagdevi, Bharati, Sharada, Vagishvari, or Veenapani is the one who rides a swan, bears the garland of white lotuses, imparts bliss by her speech, has a benign face and a gentle smile on her lips. The nectar of learning and melodies born of her lyre fill the pot she has with her. The white complexioned Bharati has radiant palms, carries a rosary and wears white costume. 'Parama jyotirupa' or 'jyotiswarupa' Saraswati, possessed of timeless youth and lustre of crores of moons, sandal's fragrance, tenderness and glow and the soothing softness of snow, could only be conceived as having a milky white complexion. This describes precisely her form in early centuries of the medieval era. A Saraswati statue, now in British Museum, attributed to legendary king Raja Bhoja of Malwa (A.D. 1018 to 1060), who is known to have built the much talked about Bhojashala at Dhar, and another one of the same period from Suhania in Madhya Pradesh, now in Gwalior Museum, are two of the widely quoted examples of this form.

Saraswati, the earliest of all Brahmanical goddesses, is, however, perceived, in earlier texts, as seated on lotus and carrying in her four hands attributes of Brahma. Veena and swan are not found in pre-medieval texts. In Rigveda she is Vak and is invoked as the goddess who with her light illuminates all and brightens all pious thoughts. In Rigveda, Vak has been perceived as the inherent power of 'mantra', known in Vedic literature as Brahman. The 'mantra', or Brahman, subsequently personified as Brahma and Vak, born of Brahman, as Brahma's daughter. The Creation became manifest by Vak, or speech, hence, Vak subsequently began representing Brahma's consort.

Despite such intricate origin, formative deviations and multiple manifestations Saraswati has always remained in extensive reverence as the goddess of light, learning, arts, music and of all that is creative and blissful, though among temple deities she had only secondary place. Other goddesses belong to this or that sect, but Saraswati is an integral part of Indian pantheon -Brahminical, i.e., Hindu, Buddha and Jain. The Jain pantheon has sixteen manifestations of Saraswati and Buddha five. In Buddhist Tantrism, she has been manifested as the Tantrika deity. Icons of Saraswati are considered highly auspicious and her presence in a dwelling brings light, learning and bliss. In academic, artistic, theatrical, musical and cultural institutions an icon of Saraswati is a must.

This 75 cm. tall and 56 cm. wide brass statue has the look of a medieval bronze masterpiece. In its technique of casting, textual prescriptions and art-merit it marvels the Chola and Pala art of bronze casting. A well defined anatomy with each member fabulously bejeweled is characteristic to Southern Chola bronzes. The large towering crown is especially cast in Southern art style. The unique emotionality, with which figure's face is charged, is the attribute of Pala art. A gentle smile on lips, deep emotion in eyes, moving fingers and the music emitting from her 'veena' impart to the image its celestial quality. Prominent eye-lashes, sharp nose, small cute lips, receding chin, heavy neck, temptingly protruding breasts, narrow waist, all are reminiscent of the golden era of India's sculptural art. The goddess is riding a bird, which has swan's majesty and peacock's charm.

Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

Unveiling the Wisdom and Creativity of Saraswati: A Deeper Understanding

Mother Saraswati is one of the three principal Goddesses in Hinduism who are known as “Tridevi”; the other two being Lakshmi and Parvati. In the Vedic scriptures, she is mentioned as the consort of Lord Brahma, the creator of the material world, and thus assists him in his activities. She is often depicted as having a beautiful youthful body with four arms holding a book (represents the Vedas), a rosary (signifying the importance of chanting the holy names of the Supreme Lord Vishnu), a water pot, and a musical instrument called Veena. She sits on a white swan that symbolizes the capacity to discriminate between good and evil.

She is worshiped by many people across the globe in different forms. She is the Goddess of knowledge, art, music, speech, and learning. People in parts of India celebrate Saraswati Puja in the month of spring in which the elders of the family begin the day by taking the blessings of Mother Saraswati and then teach their children to read and write the letters of the alphabet.

Can Saraswati idol be kept at home?

Goddess Saraswati is the manifestation or expansion of Goddess Lakshmi or Srimati Radharani, the eternal consort of the Supreme Lord. She is very merciful toward all living entities and blesses them with whatever material desires they have. But if one sincerely and genuinely approaches her and serves her to know about the Absolute Truth and the real aim of human life, she bestows all good fortune upon them and inspires them to walk the path toward the Supreme. Thus, if you want to please Mother Saraswati through your selfless service, you can keep her deity at home and worship her with faith and devotion.

Where should we keep a Saraswati idol at home?

Knowing that Goddess Saraswati is worthy of our respectful obeisance at her lotus feet is important. If you have a deity of Mother Saraswati at home or are planning to buy one, the best place to keep it is the altar. She should be worshiped with the right attitude and mindset. However, if you want to keep the deity in your living room for spiritualizing the space, you should keep it on a clean surface.

What is the benefit of keeping a Saraswati idol?

Keeping and worshiping the deity of Goddess Saraswati at your home will be highly beneficial for the whole family. As she is the bestower of knowledge, she can bless you with a good memory, intelligence, and artistic skills. If you worship her with full faith and surrender, she will guide you to the path of the Absolute Truth, the way back home, back to Godhead. This is the ultimate fruit of worshiping her.

How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?

Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.


Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.



  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth. 


Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
