When in need
of protection from the atrocities of the Asurs, gods came together and combined
their energies resulting in the birth of Devi Durga. As her name highlights,
Devi is like a durg – a majestic fort that never falls prey to its enemies. It
is a tradition in many Indian households to place the face or mask of the
goddess as a protective shield for the house. This brass Durga face subtly
brings out the beauty and tranquility of the warrior goddess.
Even though fighting the demons, Durga does not enjoy the carnage, but only participates in the war in order to protect her devotees. Thus, instead of a ferocious look, the face emits calmness. Her quintessential mukut (crown) is the highlight of this piece, which majestically adorns Devi’s head while bringing attention to her exquisiteness. Below the mukut, we can see her curly hair parted in the middle, where a dot of vermillion (an auspicious sign for a married woman) is visible. The artist represented Devi Durga’s spiritual prowess by carving the third eye on her forehead. Devi Durga’s face is placed on a fine wooden stand, making it easy for you to place this brass piece in your home and always be under the loving protection of the divine mother.
