This is a hand crafted brass sculpture of Durga, also known as Devi ( goddess ), Shakti which means Strength amongst numerous other names and is in principal, one of the most popular of Hindu goddesses.
She is the warrior goddess, whose mythology centres around combating evil and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity and Dharma of the good. She is the fierce form of the protective mother goddess, willing to unleash her anger against wrong, violence for liberation and destruction to empower creation.
Durga is always depicted in the Hindu pantheon as a fearless woman riding a lion or tiger, with many arms each carrying a weapon, often defeating the mythical buffalo demon and appears in Indian texts as the wife of God Shiva and as another form of Parvati or Mother goddess.
She has a significant following all over India and Nepal, particularly in its eastern states of India especially West Bengal and is revered after spring and autumn harvests, specially during the festival of Navratari.
