Tranquil Roopa Of Devi Durga, With Superb Detailing

Tranquil Roopa Of Devi Durga, With Superb Detailing

The kalamkari Durga is beauteous and tranquil. While Her beauty cannot be disputed, wrath and not tranquility characterises the major part of Her iconography. She is the ashtabhujadhari (eight-armed) simhavahini (lion-rider) Devi, seated in lalitasana on its back. Like traditional Devi Durga compositions, the weapons in Her hands constitute Her shringar; and it is from traditional Devi Durga compositions that certain aspects of this kalamkari set Her apart. One of Her anterior hands is raised in blessing, another one bears a lotus that rests delicately on the lap of Her saree. Her face is soft-featured, and bears a composure of supreme compassion and stability. The Shaivite tilak on Her temple serves as Her husband's presence in this painting, without which no projection of the Devi Herself is ever complete.

The word 'kalamkari' is a portmanteau of 'kalam' (pen) and 'kari' (handiwork). The kalam in question is a sprig of bamboo sculpted into the shape of a rudimentary pen. The kari is done on a section of very specifically treated fabric canvas, using homemade colours put together from organic pigments. This form of folk art has been practised in Andhra Pradesh, its Southern roots quite visible in this particular composition. From the tall tapering crown of the Devi Durga to the highly detailed motifs in the background. In fact, the level of detailing done in each unit surface area of the painting is quintessentially kalamkari - zoom in on the pleats of the Devi's saree, the engravings on Her crown, ad the body of the simha to appreciate the same. This work of art is designed to be hung solo on a wall in your space, making for an imposing statement.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
