  • Antique Javanese Style Majapahit Mahishasuramardini Durga Statue - 32cm/13"

    Measures (Height) 32cm/13"

    An antique Majapahit style bronze Mahishasuramardini Durga stood on a Lion, the mount of Parvati, Dawon.

    Durga is a Goddess of War, the warrior form of Parvati, whose mythology centres around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity, and Dharma the power of good over evil. Durga is also a fierce form of the protective mother Goddess, who unleashes her divine wrath against the wicked for the liberation of the oppressed, and entails destruction to empower creation.

    She is considered the destroyer of negativity. Durga means "the invincible" or "the inaccessible". In this sculpture; she is shown with 8 arms holding various items. These include a bell, sword, prayer malas, axe, gada and trident.

    The Trident or Trishula is a divine symbol and principle iconography of the Hindu religion. The three points of the trishula have various meanings and significance, and, common to the Hindu religion, have many stories behind them. They are commonly said to represent various trinitie - creation, maintenance, and destruction; past, present, and future; body, mind and atman; dharma or dhamma (law and order), bliss/mutual enjoyment and emanation/created bodies; compassion, joy and love; spiritual, psychic and relative; happiness, comfort and boredom; pride, repute and egotism; clarity, knowledge and wisdom; heaven, mind and earth; soul, fire and earth; soul, passion and embodied-soul; logic, passion and faith; prayer, manifestation and sublime.

    The deity is clothed in traditional Majapahit style.
