The 'Devi Mahatmya' is a paean to the greatness of Durga. Of all the myths that the Devi Mahatmya associates with Durga, that of her encounter with the buffalo-demon Mahisa has achieved the maximum popularity.

Here the monumental image of Durga stands tall with eight arms, holding as many weapons - one in each hand. Though shown fighting the demon Mahisha, with weapons of offence, and even driving her spear into his chest, the goddess has a wholly benign expression and her face is lit with a smile. If the upper half of the kalamkari looks clattered with Durga's numerous arms and weapons, the lower half contains beasts and the demon, overlapping each other. The ferociously virile buffalo wilts before the female force. It seems that Durga has not yet dealt the mortal blow as the demon (not emerging out of the buffalo) is seen standing in a stunned and confused manner, recoiling from her attack.

The artist has used hierarchic scaling of Durga's figure, which towers above all, signifying her superior status. He, however, uses minimum colours, attending to other linear and compositional details.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!
Anir, UK
Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
