Detailed Description Fragment of a temple wall containing the figure of four-armed 'Saraswati'. The Goddess holds a 'vina' in two hands, the upper right hand holds a lotus while the lower left hand is broken. A goose can be seen near her feet. The 'vina' is largely a later restoration effected by the villagers who worshipped the image before it was acquired by the Museum."
