Goddess Saraswati destroying the Demon of Ignorance,

granting us knowledge and divine wisdom.


​सरस्वती


Saraswati, Goddess of knowledge and the arts,

is the river of consciousness that enlivens creation;

she is the dawn-goddess whose rays dispel the darkness of ignorance.

Her energy is essential for discrimination, academics and performing arts

and blesses us with perfection of all arts and sciences.  

Saraswati actually means "the one who flows". 

Saraswati is a river of knowledge that flows in the highest heaven of Brahma

and descends into our minds through the doors of learning to become established in us

as knowledge and wisdom.


She symbolizes the purifier in our quest for liberation. 
She personifies in humans civilized behavior, refined tastes and artistic talent. 

Saraswati grants wisdom, knowledge, creativity and intuition

for the flowering of our minds and refinement of our character.

City of Redondo Beach Utility Box Public Art Program,

"All Things Centered, Box 1 & Box 2" at Diamond Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway,

Redondo Beach Civic Center, September 2019

DEDICATION:

​The title of this work, 

“All Things Centered” 

​is conceptualized by the two utility boxes representing 
the duality of centeredness and emphasizes the importance of 
our Civic Center as the ultimate place of grounding and focus in our community. 
The boxes illustrate two types of centeredness, radial and longitudinal... 
there are always two or more points of view in any civic activity, 
and the two box set is intended to reflect 
the diversity of Nature and its inherent harmonious power in our lives.
