Saraswati (Pahadi School)
Painting on paper
8 x 6" / 20 x 15 cms  
Recent reproduction of a traditional miniature 
Part of the जल देवी (Water Goddess) Curation as part of The Monsoon Festival 16

Deified in the Vedas, today the river Saraswati is extinct, but continues to live metaphysically alluding to the powerful creative imagination that religious practice can trigger and enhance. Transcending her origins as a river goddess, Saraswati has another venerable realm to herself: she is the goddess of learning, wisdom and the arts. That she can be a personification of both water and creativity; further validates the nourishing power of the essential element. Unlike the other two Devis, this goddess is set against a largely dry landscape (perhaps to align with the fact that the river has now gone dry); though there is a hint of water in the foreground. Clothed classically in white, she is seated on her regular vahana: the swan; and holds the Vina and the Vedas in her painted hands.
