(Rated 4.0)
Devi Sarasvati, wife of Brahma, queen of the veena. She is the presiding deity over learning and the fine arts; and as such the veena is indispensable to Her iconography. The Sarasvati that you see on this page conforms to the norm and depicts Her dancing to the sound of Her veena. The four arms of the chaturbhujadharini are intact: while the anterior ones cradle the long, slender body of the musical instrument, the posterior ones wield the rosary and a pothi.

The Devi, Her form as long and lithe as the veena, is sculpted in keeping with the Hoysala style. It is the name given to the architecture and iconography that flourished in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries under the patronage of the Hoysala dynasty rulers. The sculpture that you see on this page is a fine example of the same. The double lotus pedestal with the latticeworked section and the lotus petal engravings. The vine-like plumage of the peacock, vahana of Devi Sarasvati, and fishtail sashes descending from either side of Her curvaceous hips. The long, intricately sculpted hands and feet. The signature shringar and the ratio in which the features of Her countenance have been executed. Each aspect of the Devi has been carved with adherence to the textual iconography that prevailed in the Hoysala period and an unputdownable degree of shraddha (devotional skill).

Devi Sarasvati dances to the music that births and sustains the triloka (three realms of existence).
