GODDESS SHRINE: SARASWATI is the Hindu Goddess of Creativity and Wisdom. It has been a longtime practice for artists and others interested in the Goddesses to collect handmade goddess shrines to enhance their work or meditation space. This piece of folk art had an interesting beginning. I purchased the antique box at an antique shop by the sea in Santa Barbara many years ago. Enhanced by my vast treasure trove of findings and whatnots, the wooden box is painted blue with gold paint rubbed over,the background mostly blues with some red and gold... the findings are metal and paper. This very rustic box stands on tiny painted feet. One of a kind.
While my best selling shrines over the years have been Quan Yin and Venus/Parvati, this goddess embodies a positive creative vibe which appeals to me as a jewelry and multimedia artist and someone interested in spirituality and healing and the meaning of the Universe.
Saraswati is a great addition to any creative or healing space. Perfect for any artists space or office that represents the spiritual aspect. As I said, it is quite a rustic piece but would look well in a stark modern setting too. The dimensions are 9 x 10 x 2 l/2. This would be an interesting addition to your shrine collection! The more you look at the individual cubby spaces, the more you will appreciate the words and symbols of prosperity and healing including "Your mind is filled with ideas" "Creativity" and "Healing"
Namaste! The goddess in me honors the goddess in you.
