Saraswati, “the flowing one”, was an ancient goddess of the Saraswati (Sarasvati) River, a river sacred to the ancient Aryans. She embodies many qualities:

  • she suggests the sacredness of rivers or of water in general
  • she is said to bestow fertility and riches, for her waters enrich the land so it can produce
  • like clear water, she represents purity
  • Saraswati is associated with sound;as Vak she is the goddess of river-like streaming speech
  • she is the goddess of learning
  • she is patroness of the arts
  • she is the mythological inventor of Sanskrit
  • she is the consort of Brahma

This lovely Mission Studios sculpture depicts Saraswati in standing pose, calmly playing her instrument, the vina.
