This is a very beautiful Tibetan thangka painting of Goddess Saraswati. A god of knowledge and creativity.
Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. She is a part of the trinity (Tridevi) of Saraswati, Lakshmi, and Parvati. All the three forms help the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva to create, maintain, and regenerate the Universe, respectively.
On this thangka, Saraswati is seated on lotus and her hand holding Vin-a (a musical instrument of Goddess Saraswati). Her legs are crossed and slightly raised and the vina is placed on her lap showing the perfect gesture for playing the Vin-a. Her legs are drawn up in an unusual cross ankled posture with her knees raised, presumably a posture for musical performance. She is a popular goddess among Buddhist, Hindus, and Jains as well. The Buddhists regarded her as one of the twenty-one emanations of the goddess Tara.
