Devi Chamunda In Her Ferocious Elements

Devi Chamunda In Her Ferocious Elements

Devi Chamunda In Her Ferocious Elements

(Rated 5.0)

Madhubani art is known for its love of Devi themes. It is no wonder because the East, where the village of Madhubani is located, is where Devi worship has flourished since time immemorial. Devi Chamunda, the subject of this Madhubani painting, is the most beloved of the Devis in this part of the subcontinent where She is worshipped in Her Mahishasuramardini roopa as depicted here. While the iconography of the subject is replete, the treatment is on the unconventional side.

Having originated amongst the region’s homebound women who were in a bid to decorate their simple mud dwellings, Madhubani paintings keep to spiritual themes and deva-devi depictions. This work is no exception to such a rule. The slender dashabhujadhari (ten-armed) Devi, with Her trusty vahana the lion, vanquishes the adharmi Mahishasura (buffalo-demon) and his vahana. She pins them down, gazing straight into the demon’s eyes with an expression of triumph and finality.

The colour palette of this work of art is dominated by ochre, which makes up the solid-coloured background. The figures in the painting feature understated pastels applied with superfine brushstrokes, complemented by a sparing proportion of black. This is quite unusual, given that Madhubanis are typically painted in thick black lines which are rarely ever filled in with colour. This one would therefore make a statement addition to your folk art collection or an expressive one to your pooja-room.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
