Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. She is also the consort of Lord Brahma the creator of the universe. She has four hands representing four aspects of human personality in learning: mind, intellect, alertness and ego. She has sacred scriptures in one hand and a lotus as the symbol of true knowledge in the second. With her other two hands she plays the music of love and life on a string instrument called the Veena. Carved out of Brass and Stone with all its fine details, this statue is testimony to a rare artisanship of the distant past that has been kept alive by a group of extremely skilled artisans.

The abhaya mudra symbolizes protection, peace and dispelling of fear (Abhaya in Sanskrit). As per Buddhist texts, the lord had made this gesture upon attaining enlightenment. This was also the gesture made by the god while being attacked by an angry elephant and managing to calm it down. The gesture is made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, arm bent, and palm facing outward. The gesture demonstrates that the hand is empty of weapons and thus indicates friendship and peace. When the right hand is in the abhaya mudra, the left hand usually hangs loosely at the side of the body or makes the varada mudra, or gift-giving gesture.
