Durga by Csyeung Durga by Csyeung
This is one of the sketches I did for the upcoming set from :iconpernastudios: entitled Classic Mythology. This set will focus on 6 timeless Classic Mythologies that we have all come to love and enjoy during our lifetime. The mythologies spotlighted in this set are Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Celtic, Japanese and Hindu. Set scheduled to be released in early Spring 2012.

Hindu Mythology Durga was a form of Devi (meaning Goddess), the supremely radiant goddess, depicted as having eight arms, riding a lion or a tiger, carrying weapons and a lotus flower, maintaining a meditative smile, and practicing mudras, or symbolic hand gestures. The word Shakti means divine feminine; energy/force/power, and Durga is the warrior aspect of the Divine Mother. As a goddess, Durga's feminine power contains the combined energies of all the gods. Each of her weapons was given to her by various gods: Rudra's trident, Vishnu's discus, Indra's thunderbolt, Brahma's kamandalu, Kuber's Ratnahar, etc.

(I copied descrip from the Perna site =D, cause it is described such more eloquently than I can)
