Description Manasa (pronounced "Manesha") is a Goddess of snakes & agriculture, often worshiped in Bengal. She is the daughter of the sage Kasyapa and brother of the naga king Vasuki. Her son's name is Astik, who shown on the Goddess's lap in the sculpture. Manasa's worship is believed to offer protection from snakebite; while anyone who offends her may be punished by this means.  Courtesy of Mr. Arlen O'Laochdha

Manesha demands respect.  She is majestically seated on the top of the pyramid base that is crowned by a 7 headed cobra.  She looks out hypnotizing anyone who looks at her with her deep, penetrating stare.  On her lap sits a small child.  She holds some type of root or stem with leaves.
