Lady of Creation : Goddess Saraswati Picture

Working on finals and working. xD; But I felt like doing this before Navaratri.

This is the first time I've ever made a headpiece from scratch. It probably looks like crap, but I like it anyway.

Goddess Saraswati is an important deity in Hindu religion. She is the consort of Brahma, the creator and one of the Goddesses (along with Lakshmi and Kali/Parvati) that complete the Tridevi. She is considered the creative force that was used to create the worlds, because she is Brahma's Shakti (power/creative force).

Saraswati Mata (Mother Saraswati) is the goddess of all knowledge, all creative arts and speech. She is known as the mother of the Vedas and the mother of Narada (?). In Vedic times, she was an important river goddess. However, as time passed, her status seemed to have elevated.

Some renditions portray her to be the daughter of Shiva and Parvati, while some have her to be the daughter of Brahma (?).

She is also known as Vani, Vagdevi, Vaak and sometimes is addressed as Sharada Maa.

It's wikipedia time!

Saraswati is strongly associated with flowing water in her role as a goddess of knowledge. She is depicted as a beautiful woman to embody the concept of knowledge as supremely alluring. She possesses four arms, and is usually shown wearing a spotless white sari and seated on a white lotus or riding a white swan.


She, who is as fair as the Kunda flower, white as the moon, and a garland of Tushar flowers;and who is covered in white clothes
She, whose hands are adorned by the excellent veena, and whose seat is the pure white lotus;
She, who is praised by Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh;
O Mother Goddess, remove my mental inertia!
