Durga, the battle queen, the warrior-goddess, holds forth on her own, playing a role traditionally ascribed to men. She is beautiful, benevolent, terrifying, all-powerful and glorious.

This unique representation of the goddess is popular in South India. When she is portrayed as Vishnu's sister, she is eight-armed and holds his emblems - the conch shell and the discus. She is also visualized as Shiva's consort and in her other hands she holds Shiva's trident, a bow, a sword and a shield. The main two hands show the abhaya and the varada mudras. She is seated on a decorated plinth with one leg folded in and the other pendant. The multiple roles of the goddess are apparent in this kalamkari; she is not only the battle queen but also a protective mother inspiring reverence.

Seated below the plinth is Durga's vehicle, the lion. The lion is seen as mirroring certain traits which probably displays more strongly the might of the divinity.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
