Artist's Description

A dancing pose of Barat Natyam, the artist depicting Mother Durga killing demon Mahishasur.
In Hinduism, Durga (Sanskrit: दुर्गा, meaning "the inaccessible or “the invincible”;or Maa Durga, meaning “Mother Durga” "one who can redeem in situations of utmost distress Durga is a form of Devi, the supremely radiant goddess, depicted as having ten arms, riding a lion or a tiger, carrying weapons and 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 svātantrya (independence from the universe and anything/anybody else, i.e., self-sufficiency) and fierce compassion. Kali is considered by Hindus to be an aspect of Durga. Durga is also the mother of Ganesha and Kartikeya. She is thus considered the fiercer, demon-fighting form of Shiva’s wife, goddess Parvati. Durga manifests fearlessness and patience, and never loses her sense of humor, even during spiritual battles of epic proportion
A studio capture of my dancer friend Pinky Chowdhery, also a respected dance teacher at the local Sacred Heart Convent School, Ludhiana India. I have used two lights.
Camera, Nikon D70, Lens 18-70 @ 18mm, f/11, Speed 1/500 sec.
