Poised befittingly tall as one who has just triumphed over a powerful enemy in a vigorous battle, the goddess Durga stands with her two legs firmly placed on the decapitated buffalo head of the demon she has just annihilated. While images from North India generally depict her in actual combat with the demon, plunging a weapon deep into his body, those from the South, as this sculpture, depict the goddess in triumph after the actual battle has ended.

Here the Great Goddess has eight arms, each holding a different implement. She wears a tall and conical crown typical to South Indian aesthetics. The calm and inward-looking expression on her face belie the ruthlessness evident in battle just a few moments ago. Her mount, the lion, standing behind her, still bears evident traces of wrath, even though the goddess herself displays no anger. On the lion's face framed by a beautiful mane are two popping eyes, and an open mouth revealing a set of gnarling teeth.

The whole composition is backed by an elaborate aureole, topped with the 'kirtimukha', the face of auspiciousness.

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.
