Description
Devi stands in the shade of a banana tree with her right arm holding onto the flower of the tree.  The tree is a collection of abstract swirling tendrils that flow to her right.  Devi's right hand is reaching down to caress the neck of a peacock that is nestling behind her.  Devi is truly the "mother goddess" in this sculpture with her full breasts and womanly hips.  She wears her hair in a bun on top of her head.  She has a bindi on her forehead as well as two circular earings.  A beautiful sculpture of Uma Devi!

Care:
  Grey marble is a delicate stone which gives the artist the ability to carve very fine details in it as one can see by the beautiful detail work done on all these statues.  When cleaning the statue it is best to use a clean paint brush or a cotton cloth to go over the piece and effectively remove all the dust.  DO NOT USE OIL of any type as this will seep into the stone and discolor the statue.    
About Saraswati
Saraswati the goddess of knowledge, who is praised by the wise, who is the wife of the creator, may she reside on the tip of my tongue.

Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge and the arts, embodies the wisdom of Devi. She is the river of consciousness that enlivens creation; she is the dawn-goddess whose rays dispel the darkness of ignorance. Without her there is only chaos and confusion. To realize her one must go beyond the pleasures of the senses and rejoice in the serenity of the spirit.

Saraswati wears neither jewels or paints herself with bright colors. The white sari she adorns reflects her essential purity, her rejection of all that is base and materialistic. She transcends the craving s of the flesh and rejoiced in the powers of the mind as the patron of pure wisdom. She embodies all that is pure and sublime in Nature.

The four Vedas, books of universal knowledge, were her offspring. Her mount, the swan, personifies pure knowledge and her herald, the peacock, is a symbol of the arts. Schools and libraries are her temples; books, pens, all tools of the artist and musical instruments are the items used in puja to the enlightening goddess of wisdom.

The Story of Saraswati Saving the World from Shiva's Third Eye and the Beast of Doom:  Shiva was woken from his meditations and looked around to discover a world on the brink of corruption and being unsalvageable. Shiva decided it was time to wipe the slate clean. Shiva, the destroyer, opened his world destroying third eye attempting to destroy the three worlds. Out came a terrible fire that threatened all existence.

There was panic everywhere. Only Saraswati remained calm. "Shiva's fire burns only that which is impure and corrupt."

She took the form of a river and with her pure waters picked up the dreaded fire from Shiva's third eye. Within the folds of her water she carried the fire far away from the earth to the bottom of the sea where it transformed into a fire breathing mare called Badavagni - the beast of doom.

"So long as the world is pure and man wise, this terrible creature will remain on the bottom of the sea. When wisdom is abandoned and man corrupts the world, Badavagni will emerge and destroy the universe," foretold the wise goddess.
