After posing as Saraswati, I decided to draw her consort Brahma for my icongrapghy assignment.
I've only completed the sketch and I'm uploading a picture before I paint just in case I mess up.
I shall update the current post with the finished Brahma after I come back from my trip to Andhra.

Icongraphy

The Four Faces – dipect the four Vedas 

The Four Hands – represent the four directions: east, south, west, and north. 
The back right hand represents mind in which brahma here is holding a brain.
The back left hand represents intellect
The front right hand is ego the front left hand is self-confidence.
The Prayer beads symbolize the substances used in the process of creation.
The Book The book symbolizes knowledge. ("physics for dummies")
The Swan – The swan is the symbol of grace and discernment. Brahmā uses the swan as his vāhana, or his carrier or vehicle.
The Crown –Lord Brahmā's crown indicates His supreme authority.
