This is a flamboyant re-creation of Indian mythological theme in a Western manner. The sensibility of the painter, as expressed in the selection of the theme and its treatment, is unmistakably Indian. This painting contains the Indian synthesis, a respect for the techniques and traditions of the west together with a true admiration for all that is genuinely and basically indigenous.

This tall and lissome Durga rides her mount, the tiger. She resembles in no way the Durga image that we are accustomed to seeing. Here, the painter builds a creative bridge between the old and the new. Only the iconic image has been experimented with, the message and implication remains the same. She wears a metal bustier and carries attributes associated with the goddess. She wears a tiara, together with a headdress that extends a long length. People, recipients of her grace and benevolence, are represented by a couple of tribals standing on lower hills. They are dressed in attire akin to that of the north-eastern states. The hands of both the man and the woman, are on the hilt of the swords, ready to draw them out and attack if need be. Durga, standing overhead is symbolic of the shadow of protection and benevolence of the great goddess. Durga is known to have a dual characteristic – a fierce nature and a gentle one. The background is reflective of the same. One side of the background has the light of the rising sun and the other is dark and stormy.

This magnificent work is tactile and enigmatic as only textured oils can be when the painting is both figurative and symbolic.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
