Known as the destroyer of Mahishasura, the Goddess Durga occupies a special place in the Hindu pantheon of Gods. Known as the mother of the universe and revered as the spiritual power behind the work of creation, preservation and destruction of the world, Durga, through all her forms, has come to encompass the essence of salvation and sacrifice. She is worshipped as the mother of bounty and wealth, the mother of beauty and knowledge as well as the embodiment of purity, truth and self-realization. This exquisite marble sculpture pays tribute to her multi-dimensional being and represents the goddess as in classical literature: resplendent, victorious and gloriously seated upon her lion. The master craftsman easily manages to capture both a feeling of immense power as well as benevolence and peace through this exquisite artefact. Carved in an ancient Rajasthani style, dating back centuries, this masterpiece in marble makes a perfect addition to your living room or your puja room.

The abhaya mudra symbolizes protection, peace and dispelling of fear (Abhaya in Sanskrit). As per Buddhist texts, the lord had made this gesture upon attaining enlightenment. This was also the gesture made by the god while being attacked by an angry elephant and managing to calm it down. The gesture is made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, arm bent, and palm facing outward. The gesture demonstrates that the hand is empty of weapons and thus indicates friendship and peace. When the right hand is in the abhaya mudra, the left hand usually hangs loosely at the side of the body or makes the varada mudra, or gift-giving gesture.
