Being a multivalent goddess, Durga is closely related to tribal and local deities and is honoured and revered by all social classes. There is hardly any village in the entire country that does not have an idol or image of Durga or one of her millions of forms.

Mahisasuramardini is the title Durga attained on killing the demon Mahisa. Representations of Mahisa vary – some depict him emerging from the buffalo, others show him in just a demon form. Here, not only is he without an animal disguise, but armed also, holding a sickle and a shield. He is painted green, in colour of venom. His chest is wounded by the deity's spear.

Durga, astride the lion, looks resplendent. The multi-armed goddess holds all kinds of weapons of destruction. By her expression, Durga looks very angry. If one could look beautiful in anger, she does.

The image of Durga and Mahisa is placed on a pedestal in a niche. The artist uses conflicting colors against a black background. That alone would have been schematic, but various colors of the pillars and canopy are chromatically clashing, perhaps reiterating the militant theme of the composition.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
