In ancient India, the king's court was the hotbed of politics, administration and also art and culture. As such, the king hosted the most important people both from his kingdom as well as honoured guests from outside. It was imperative that he had a contingent of highly trained and exceptionally skilled courtesans to welcome and take care of his visitors and his guests. One such beauty serves as the muse for this exquisite sandstone sculpture. With her palms folded together in a gesture of welcoming a visitor to the kings court, the courtesan's trained bearing and inherent grace are expertly captured by the master craftsman's chisel, while her sensuality and poise are also highlighted through the adroit craftsmanship.

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.
