Handpainted Durga Thangka
Durga, also known as Devi or Mahadevi, is an important Hindu goddess reflecting power, defense and femininity. Thangkas, which are usually associated with Tibetan Buddhism, can also feature Hindu divinities such as Durga. These meticulous hand-painted pieces of art give any environment the calmness and grace of reverential art, offering a distinguished way to reflect on the religious while honoring and promoting Hinduism.
A Durga Thangka carries images of the goddess Durga in her powerful form, showing her with multiple arms and weapons given by deities. Durga is depicted astride a tiger, revealing her strength and courage. These thangkas often feature her multiple manifestations such as Mahishasuramardini (the buffalo-demon vanquisher), Chamunda (the tough incarnation of Durga) and Ambika (the caring mother). It is believed that these potent images have the power to protect the bearer from harm and ill fortune.
