Majestic and lissome the Great Goddess Durga sits on her unusual mount, a 'tamed' lion. The radiant halo behind her bespeaks her divine status, the seating posture too would be too precarious for us ordinary mortals but not for this graceful goddess known for her fiery nature.

Images of Durga can have four to twenty arms. She is adorned with a crown, and is gorgeously dressed up in red clothes (a sign of auspiciousness) and bedecked heavily with ornaments, including floral and precious. Here she is eight-armed, holding in her hands a discus, sword, mace, gesture of fearlessness, conch, bow and arrow, lotus, and trident.

Lion, the royal beast, represents the best in animal creation. But it also can represent a greed for food, and hence a greed for sensory enjoyment which invariably leads to lust. Indeed to become divine one must keep one's animal instincts under control, or in other words tame them, just as Durga has her lion.

Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.
