Benten is the Japanese goddess of love, beauty, eloquence, wisdom, arts and music, knowledge, good fortune, and water.  She is the protectress of children and the patroness of geishas, dancers, and musicians.  Originally she was a sea goddess or water goddess, on whose image many local deities near lakes were based.
