Visvakarman, architect of the universe, is a poorly defined Hindu creator god mentioned in the Vedas. He is similar to Dyaus Pitar, and is described as the artist of the gods who may be linked to or identified with Tvastar. He evolved, as the son of Prabhasa and Yogasiddha, into an occasional consort of Sarasvati. A.G.H.
