This is one of the most dynamic and conventional representations of Goddess Durga where she is shown fighting the demon known as Mahisha. The painting portrays the goddess dispatching the bearded demon to a glorious end, driving a spear into his chest.

The ten-armed Devi is poised aggressively with one leg on the demon's shoulder and the other supported on her lion. Her ten arms are fanned around her, forming a resplendent mandala-like halo around her. Each hand holds a different implement, which, starting clockwise are: arrow, lotus, chakra, trident, sword, shield, conch, mace, bow and the tenth pulling at the demon's hair. Her lion mount provides his own share by gnawing at the villain's right knee.

Durga's trident is shaped like a spear at the other end. When the goddess thrusts it into the demon and blood starts oozing out, he spreads open his chest, welcoming his glorious end. Even though engaged in an action which in conventional terms would be deemed as violence, the goddess nevertheless is, as always, the epitome of Supreme Beauty. The talented artist, knowing this very well, has not left any stone unturned to highlight her feminine beauty and charm. This includes a long array of tresses, reaching nearly down to the demon, delicate and colored lips and a profusion of ornaments on her body with an especially beautiful nose ring.

The highlight of this artwork is the unique color scheme, which only an artist having a firm command over all aspects of his art, including line, material and iconography could achieve.

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.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
