Decorated statue of Goddess Sarasvati
Decorated statue of Goddess Sarasvatī, during the days of the Sarasvati-pooja (tribute and offerings). Many groups of people construct and decorate statues of Goddess Sarasvati and exhibit them publicly. There is also a short of "contest" of which group will make the most beatiful one. When the Pooja-days end, groups of people carry these wonderfully-decorated statues the the river Ganga and sink them!

Goddess Sarasvatī with Vīņā & Gramophone
Η Sarasvatī, θεά της γνώσης και της μουσικής, κρατώντας το έγχορδο Vīņā, με το οποίο παραδοσιακά συσχετίζεται, περιτριγυρισμένη από διάφορα χαρακτηριστικά για αυτήν και τις ιδιότητές σύμβολα: κύκνος, νούφαρο, κόμπρα, και ευρισκόμενη μέσα σε λίμνη. Το ιδιαίτερο στοιχείο είναι η ύπαρξη του γραμμοφώνου, καθώς η εν λόγω εικόνα χρησιμοποιήθηκε στις αρχές του 20ού αιώνα για διαφημιστικούς σκοπούς, για την προώθηση της νέας αυτής εφεύρεσης στους κύκλους των πλούσιων ακροατών.
