brilliant painting, the slayer of demon Mahishasura, Goddess Durga is depicted
in her most powerful and furious form. Mahishasura was a buffalo demon who
raged wars against the demigods. Associated with protection, motherhood,
sustenance, and destruction, Goddess Durga is considered as the one who
furiously fights against the demons to restore Dharma on the earth. She is a
humble servant of Lord Hari, who acts as Maya Devi (illusory energy) to test
the individual souls in the material world to bring them into the abode of the
Lord, which is the place of no miseries.
personified Goddess Durga having ten arms carrying different weapons, riding on
a lion (her divine mount) having a ferocious face, exposed teeth, and sharp
claws, exhibits her unimaginable potency. The ten arms represent that she
protects her devotees from all directions. She holds a conch shell, a discus, a
sword, a thunderbolt, a snake, a mace, a bow and arrow, and a trident with them.
The huge jeweled crown on her head represents her exalted personality. With
rage in her eyes, she places one leg on the lion and the other on the hand of
Mahishasura, and with the trident, she re-establishes the power of good over
evil. This day is celebrated as Vijayadashmi. Every bit of this painting has
been precisely embellished with 24 Karat gold and infused with bright
traditional South Indian color. This makes it aesthetic.
