Devi Kali, the divine Universal mother, is the destroyer of all things negative and is the nurturer of all her devotees. Her typical avatar is her blue/black skin, four or more arms, tongue out, a skirt or made of cut arms, a garland of chunk heads, and an executed head in one of her hands. It is said that she is the wrath side of goddess Durga, who began to slay the rakt beej, and killed all the demons that came before her. In the vengeance of destroying all the demons, she became uncontrollably angry which is why lord Shiva decided to lie down for her to step on him, in turn, calming her down.

Indian fashion wear has the most changing trend, so to be in
level with the great fashionistas it is mandatory to keep a regular check on
the ongoing and upcoming fashion ways for both men and women. Keeping this in
mind, our expert team brings out the best from the lot, for you, to keep your
wardrobes filled with the latest fashion trends. This linen kurta pajama set is
the most highly demanded Indian men fashion wear, as its 100% pure quality
fabric allows it to be worn in scorching sun. Linen has a natural looking
texture and can withstand high temperatures. The finest quality of a linen
fabric is that it is strong and it can easily absorb and draw away heat from
the body, which makes it a comfortable wear for summers. As you zoom in to the
image, you can see the self-textured pattern and a slight sheen on the fabric,
which gives it a semi-formal look.
The kurta is woven in a high-neck four buttoned collar, full
sleeves and length till the knees, which makes it one of the best wears for
puja ceremonies or other Indian ritual events like mehendi or haldi ceremony.
We help you out with an ample collection of colors to choose from, ranging from
all varieties of light to dark shades like the unique grey-blue, bright yellow,
dark royal green, bright blue, lustrous grey, soothing lavender, peach and the
oceanic blue. All the colors of kurtas are paired with snow white colored linen
pajama and a single pocket on the left side of the chest to create the best set
of Indian fashion wear for men.
Along the breadth, the embroidery is perfectly symmetrical. The same is best appreciated by zooming in - miniscule flowers with delicate petals quivering under the weight of their own colours. The colour palette ranges from greens and blues to browns and yellows, but the pastels are so densely packed together across the field that the overall tone is one of solemnity.
Devi Durga is a feminine epitome of strength and a divine potency responsible for keeping this material world in order and decorum; she is an embodiment of ferocity as well as compassion who holds equal parts as a destroyer and creator both. This brass statue is painted in enchanting brown and golden color combination with the divinity perched in lalitasana on a ferocious lion (Durga’s vahana), hence named as Simhavahini. The lion is carved in glowing golden hairs on a copper-brown body and stands on multiple layered rectangular pedestals chiseled in beautiful lotus petals and ethnic patterns.
Ashtabhujadari (one with eight hands) Durga is garbed in an exclusive dual tone sari with pallu in glowing brown and the dhoti is carved in amazing pleats in golden with the corresponding mesh structured blouse; embellished with precious gold jewels that complement beautifully with her attires and the long crown glorified on her head identifies her cosmic aura along with the stylized flower aureole. Her realistic expressions of the vigilant eyes and that confident smile ready to face fears assure the devotees of their protection; the eight hands carry all her weapons of destruction and creation focusing on her holistic approach.
The crowned Kirtimukha thick arch is chiseled in lavish ethnic patterns all over with the outer layer formed in brown and golden floral-like coils and the innermost layer in a chain of circles. This statue is a trending and auspicious piece to be placed at your house or office; its distinctive color and natural carve captivates the eyes of the viewer
In this exceptional brass idol of Maa Durga, goddess Depicted with ten hands and standing on her loyal, dreaded lion. With her two hands, she is grasping a long trident-cum – a spear and in others, holding her sacred Sharag Dhanush, saber, chakra, sankha, bludgeon, plow - pestle, parshu - pash, etc. Seeing the goddess in extreme anger and fierce rage, fear of enemies increased.
With the lion pouncing and hitting the demon with its pointy toes and fierce teeth, Devi Durga is busy crushing great fiery demon Mahishasura with her edgy spear on his broad chest, catching him by hairs. Bejeweled with ornaments, the mother is looking very pretty with her awesome waistline and tight-fittest body even in this pose. The whole structure is installed on a beautiful heightened platform. We take pride in the matchless craftsmanship- it is stylish and showy.

The oil painting that you see on this page depicts the beauteous Devi in a vivid red saree and a gold crown, with Her gorgeous black mane cascading down Her back. The jewels that encircle Her halo of pale gold match the ones studded densely onto Her crown. Around Her neck is a garland of fresh flowers, a devotional offering. She is ashtabhujadharini, the one possessed of (‘dharini’) eight (‘ashta’) arms (‘bhuja’). In each of those hands is a weapon or a divine implement.
The word simhavahini is a portmanteau of ‘simha’ (lion) and ‘vahini’ (rider). Nothing less than a lion suffices Her purpose, as sturdy and determined as She is. Note the brushstrokes that have gone into the mane and the revealed musculature of the creature, proof of the painter’s skill as well as shraddha. An aura of blue surrounds Devi Durga’s haloed head, which contrasts with the textured purple ink background of the composition.
