"Chinnamasta is shiveringly awe-inspiring. Headless, she holds a cleaver in one hand and her own head, crowned with flowing hair, in the other. Three streams of blood spurt from her neck. Her two naked attendants are drinking her blood, which streams into their mouths. Chinnamasta demands that we look for the sacred in the forbidden and the terrifying." From "Awakening Shakti" by Sally Kempton
Sarasvati/Saraswati the goddess of Knowledge. She is the consort to the god Brahma. She is the Mother of the Vedas. In this picture she is holding a musical instrument. As well as sitting on top of a swan, who is sitting on top of a lotus flower.
