Ashtadashabhujadharini Devi Durga Statue
Ashtadashabhujadharini Devi Durga Statue

An image of the infinite limbs and the inexhaustible prowess of the Ashtadashabhujadharini Devi Durga Statue. Upon the severed head of the divine mahisha (buffalo), she stands, Her hips jutting subtly at a lateral angle which serves to bring out the sharp waist-to-hip ratio of Her form. Her full-figured torso, overlain with breastbands and necklaces, is flanked by eighteen (‘ashtadasha’) arms (‘bhuja’). A signature aspect of her iconography, She wields in each of her hands a divine implement with which to vanquish adharma. It is interesting to note that these weapons, gifted to her by the devas of devaloka who birthed her, are her greatest shringar (adornment). Note the superb precision with which the lifelike musculature of those limbs has been sculpted, no mean feat when one considers how difficult bronze is to work with as a medium.

Durga, however, is no less in terms of beauty and vigor. Zoom in on her gorgeous face and the handsomely pronounced jawline and the wide-set shoulders that taper down to a superb waist. A tall crown that tapers like a temple top sits on her brow, a hallmark of Southern workmanship. Behind it was the mere outline of a halo with spikes, like the mightiest star of the heavens eclipsed by her very presence. Her vahana, the lion, is a complement to the same. It is as ferocious and all-devouring as the Mahishasuramardini Herself, but in this murti, their twin presence is characterised by tranquillity.
