A veena as long and limber as She is, rests in Her anterior hands: zoom in on the shapely fingers that harp on its strings, sculpted by the artisan with considerable skill and shraddha. Saraswati is clad in a resplendent gold saree, the pleats held in place by a sun-shaped kamarband. Two necklaces grace Her aanchal-clad torso. A choker clasps at Her poised neck, which is flanked by the length of Her thick, wave-like tresses. Her consummately sculpted face bears an expression of solemnity and reserve.
The lotus that seats Her is in proportion to Her figure. Its large, freshly bloomed petals have the same dewiness as Her supple skin. Seated in lalitasana, the feet of the pendant leg grazes one of the outer petals. Note the tinier lotus petals that seem to emanate like sun rays from Her halo.
