Beautiful miniature painting of Saraswati
This is a rare painting of Saraswati who is the Hindu Goddess of learning, knowledge and wisdom. It is an original handmade painting and not a print.
The artwork depicts her in the most popular stance, with four arms wearing a sari and sitting on a lotus flower. She holds a holy scripture and rosary in her rear hands and her front arms are engaged in playing a lute (veena). Her right leg is seen pushing slightly against her left leg. All this symbolism illustrates many complex spiritual ideas. Since knowledge is necessary for creation, Saraswati symbolizes the creative power of Brahma - the creator of the universe. Goddess Saraswati is worshipped by all persons interested in knowledge, especially students, teachers, scholars, and scientists.
The miniature painting is a small, colorful picture painted in glowing mineral and vegetable watercolors on old postcard paper.
The painting measures 3.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches tall.
