This is one of the most dynamic and conventional representations of Goddess Durga where she is shown fighting the demon known as Mahisha. The painting portrays the goddess dispatching the bearded demon to a glorious end, driving a spear into his chest.

The ten-armed Devi is poised aggressively with one leg on the demon's shoulder and the other supported on her lion. Her ten arms are fanned around her, forming a resplendent mandala-like halo around her. Each hand holds a different implement, which, starting clockwise are: arrow, lotus, chakra, trident, sword, shield, conch, mace, bow and the tenth pulling at the demon's hair. Her lion mount provides his own share by gnawing at the villain's right knee.

Durga's trident is shaped like a spear at the other end. When the goddess thrusts it into the demon and blood starts oozing out, he spreads open his chest, welcoming his glorious end. Even though engaged in an action which in conventional terms would be deemed as violence, the goddess nevertheless is, as always, the epitome of Supreme Beauty. The talented artist, knowing this very well, has not left any stone unturned to highlight her feminine beauty and charm. This includes a long array of tresses, reaching nearly down to the demon, delicate and colored lips and a profusion of ornaments on her body with an especially beautiful nose ring.

The highlight of this artwork is the unique color scheme, which only an artist having a firm command over all aspects of his art, including line, material and iconography could achieve.

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.
