Goddess Gayatri is a personification of the revered Gayatri Mantra, formed with the combination of ‘Gaya’ and ‘Tri’, which means hymn of wisdom and combined strength of the three Goddesses (Mahalakshmi, Mahasarasvati and Mahakali) respectively. Painted here in her iconic five heads representing the Pancha Pranas in five different identifiable color combinations symbolizing Prithvi (earth), Vayu (air), Jala (water), Akasha (sky) and Teja (fire).
In the Vedic Literature, she is identified as the solar deity having a pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. Seated here on a pearl pink lotus that blooms upon the sacred waters of the river in her lalitasana; clad in a royal silk saree forming beautiful pleats and intense zari border; decked up with royal beauty of gold and pearls that veil her body in the most mesmerizing ways. One of the most striking aspect of this painting is the delicate and soft expressions of the deity, with that slight smile on her lips and a graceful gesture of her eyes.
Goddess Gayatri is shown with ten hands carrying her symbolic implements in a posture of blessing. The crown that adorns her head is formed in an alluring piece of art with decorated green and purple stones and a moon at the top. Look carefully at the background of red, orange and yellow rings, accentuating her divinity, brightness and the fact of her being the light of the sun.
