Tula Saraswathi is part of my Everyday Goddess series. Saraswathi is the goddess of music and art. She is a patron of children and learning. Saraswathi is revered in both Buddhist and Hindu traditions. Here I show her in a Mountain setting with a swan and goat. In yoga philiosophy every woman is the goddess. I'm interested in describing this idea through cultural diversity.
This artwork is Mokuhanga woodblocks, I carved 4 blocks for the different colors. I also hand painted small sections. Mokuhanga is an old-school, labor-intensive hand printmaking technique. The inks used are watercolors and sumi.
