Saraswati statue

Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music and the arts. She is also called the Mother of the Veda's and the repository of Brahma's creative intelligence.

 

She sits here on a swan (her vahana or vehicle) and holds a palmleaf scroll (knowledge), a mala of crystals (meditation, spirituality) and a veena (musical instrument). Very often, she's also holding a pot of sacred water (creative and purificatory powers).
