Numerous myths in religious texts describe battles fought between Durga and the demons, the most important being the one against Mahisha.

The eight-armed Durga looks resplendent in the ornaments she wears and the weapons she holds. The fiery halo around her head, together with the numerous arms, encompass her enchanting body. She looks picture perfect in her role as the supreme protector-warrior-victor goddess. The expression and her pose give no evidence of ferocity associated with killing a demon. Her trident, however, is aimed at Mahisha. The demon, elegantly poised, shows no expression of fear of his life at the hands of Durga. Contrary to most representations, he is not shown emerging from the buffalo. The lion gnawing at the bovine is the only fierce element in the entire work.

On close analysis of this kalamkari work, one finds traces of the Tantric icon of the Devi dancing on the corpse of her husband, Shiva.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
