A black and white illustration of a female Hindu deity with long black hair and four arms. She is sitting on top of an alligator.


The word illuminate has three definitions:

  1. light up or brighten
  2. decorate or adorn
  3. clarify or reveal

The objective for this coloring activity is not simply for the student to color the work of art, but to illuminate it!


This Hindu goddess is one you can’t miss. Why? Because this goddess is a river. That’s right. She IS the sacred Ganges River in India. Ganga rides on a creature called a Makara and has been known to cause trouble, like when she fell to earth from the heavens. But don’t worry, Ganga is also very kind and purifies all that visit her riverbanks.
