Description: This sculpture celebrates the goddess Durga's victory over the demon-buffalo Mahishasura who is represented beneath the Durga's feet, an epic told in the ancient Indian Markandeya Purana and Matsya Purana.
According to Indian mythology, Durga's body was formed by the congealed fiery energies of all the male Hindu gods who had been enraged by their defeat at the hands of Mahisha, a demon that only a woman could vanquish. "Her face was formed from Shiva, her hair from Yama, her arms from Vishnu, and so on... Shiva gave her his trident, Vishnu gave her his chakra, Vayu his bow and arrows, and so on.
