Durga is a form of Devi, the supremely radiant goddess, depicted as having ten arms, riding a lion or a tiger, carrying weapons (including a Lotus flower), maintaining a meditative smile, and practicing mudras, or symbolic hand gestures. An embodiment of creative feminine force (Shakti), Durga exists in a state of svatantrya (dependence on the universe and nothing/nobody else, self-sufficiency) and fierce compassion. This collection of statues is breathtaking in the details achieved. All the pieces are made from a composite of Real Bronze Metal and Cold Cast Resin, and as can be seen the results are quite stunning. The bronze powder mixed in cold cast resin ensures a richer, more life-like presentation giving the illusion of soft material and highlighting the soft detail of any fabrics worn by the subject. This can be seen in detail in spite of being cast in a hard material.
