PROVENANCE
From a Distinguished Family Collection, New Delhi


This large and impressive eighteen armed Durga, seen here in alidhasana, standing with the left leg bent at the knee and the right leg thrust to the side, holding various weapons in her hand, the most prominent being the trident which pierces the buffalo demon Mahisha, severing the buffalo's head, resting on the lotus pedestal. Durga's mount, the lion, stands at her right foot joining the fight against the buffalo demon. Her face with a gentle smile looks towards Mahisha who raises his hand in defense, lamenting his end, an ultimate proclamation of the power of this supreme goddess.
