Indian Statue

My artifact is a Murti It is a very detailed statue  of god. It is from India. It's used to pray to god in a special way. My mom uses it to put in a small temple in my house. My mom puts food and water there, but she doesn't use water for a specific murti. It is the saraswati murti. The saraswati murti lives in water so it does not need any water to survive. Saraswati plays an instrument called Veena. Veena is used in Carnatic Indian classical music.  I chose this because it reminds my family of the temples in bangladesh. And it is important to me because it builds up a important part of my temple. It teaches me that saraswati plays an instrument called the yeena. The VeenaI wonder if my ancestors before my mom used this murti of saraswati.I love my object because it reminds me of saraswati.
