Sock monkey goddess

The latest in Flickr user Jek in the Box's series of mystical sock monkeys is "Saras Sock Vati," a Hindu deity in sensible elasticated wool. Don't miss the Sock Buddha and Sock de Milo.

  1. I don’t usually dig this craft stuff, but that’s frickin’ cool.

    BirdbrainedBB@#2: Mother issues?

  2. That’s awesome! He captures the position so well (the hindu goddess’ hip-swaying).

    The happy Buddha is adorable, too!

  3. Sarawati is name of Hindu goddess of knowledge, music and other arts. It is also a name of lost river.

    I find it odd that she is portrayed as monkey goddess in this sock puppet. In Indian Hindu mythological paintings she is portrayed as fair skinned lady holding a Veena (traditional musical instrument) along with a peacock.
