It is recognized that craft is as much an expression of the human spirit in material form, as any other fine arts. The metalware in India may be rough divided into the religious images, ritualistic items and objects of utility.

A decorative niche forms the backdrop of this sculpture. It is enhanced by a symbolic adornment known as the Simha-Mukha. Below that, a group of five snakes form a canopy over the image of Durga. Durga here is portrayed as an exquisite youthful figure with an alluring body. Her powers are represented by her multiple arms bearing numerous weapons. Standing in tribhanga posture, she resembles a yakshi in a dancing pose. Her right leg is gracefully placed on the beheaded body of the buffalo, out of which emerges the demon Mahisa. The chopped head of the animal almost falls off the pedestal. The goddess holds the punitive demon by the hair, pulling him out of the beast's body, in order to rout him.

The round pedestal on which the image of Durga stands is again placed on a multi-layered square stand increasing in size as it touches the base. The entire niche in the background is detachable with two smooth grooves to hold the exterior. It can be removed to lessen the ostentatious effect, if so desired.
