From Sarasvati to Benten One
This series of posts will show images of Sarasvati / Benten from across ASIA.
Sarasvati or Saraswati is also depicted with a tiger or peacock and known as Shar(a)da in Southern India.
The most consistent feature of depictions of this goddess is her stringed musical instrument often described in English as a lute.
