This superfine sculpture captures the image of Ma Durga with a great deal of perfection. The roopa-svaroopa of the most powerful of peaceful female deities has been expounded in the Mahalaya (in Sanskrit, 'maha' means 'great' and 'laya' means 'lyric'). Composed in Bengal, it describes Her flawless beauty and unmatched strength. She is poised in a perfect lalitasana atop Her trusty steed, the lion, who is a personification of Her own ferocity and strength. Having come from the unattainable reaches of the Kailasha Parvat, She resembles the pure glacial whiteness of Her home and exudes transcendental stability.
Marble is a difficult medium to work with. It takes years of learning and practice to perfect one's way around stone. The marble sculptures that you see in our collection, of which this is a fine example, have been handpicked with the greatest care. Note the sheer degree of skill that must have gone into this number - the Devi's and Her lion's minute proportions such as the digits and the expressive facial features, the stateliness of the lifelike posture, and detailing in the weapons. Hints of gold detailing in the adornments of the two as well as the weapons bring out the pristine colour of the high-quality marble. The composition has been placed on a relatively austere pedestal to highlight the aforementioned details.
