Goddess Durga

Goddess DurgaDimensions : 12 x 8 x 3 Inches

Goddess Durga is depicted in a victorious stance as she triumphs over evil. She is shown standing with her right leg on the fallen body of the demon Mahishasura, whom she has vanquished. Her ten arms are outspread, bearing weapons, including a trident and a mace, and symbols of grace, such as a lotus and a conch shell. A circle of energy or chakra is seen around her head.

The fine artistry of handcrafted Indian brassware can be seen in the finish of the smooth brass idol, the expression on Goddess Durga’s face and the depiction of her long hair, ornaments and weapons.

The active stance of the snarling lion, the curls of its mane and tail, and the body of the defeated demon, display the attention to detail of traditional Indian craftsmanship.

About Durga

Durga is worshipped as an incarnation of the Mother Goddess or Devi, who appears when evil demons threaten the world. She is revered as a form of the Divine Force, who is victorious in the battle against evil.

In Hindu legend, the powerful demon Mahishasura had taken the form of a giant buffalo and went on an unstoppable rampage. The Gods were unable to defeat him and appealed to Shiva - one of the supreme trinity of Indian Gods. Shiva advised them to combine their shakti or divine energy, for only then could they quell Mahishasura. The combined energies of the Gods manifested itself in the female form of Durga - a beautiful and powerful Goddess with ten arms. Provided with weapons by the Gods and seated on a lion, she set out to do battle with Mahishasura and his demon army.
