Durga by JessiBeans Durga by JessiBeans
Part 2 of 6

Durga, a Hindu Goddess, is a form of Devi, the supreme goddess. She is sometimes referred to as the mother of Kartik, and Ganesh only. Some religions say she is an incarnation of Laxmi with the help of Saraswati and Parvati.

The form of Durga was created as a warrior goddess to fight the demon Mahishasura. Since he could only be slain by a woman, Durga was formed, blindingly beautiful, riding on the back of a lion, and she killed Mahishasura with her trident.

This is the second of a six piece portfolio for Independent Study in Digital Drawing, with piece examining a uniquely feminine trait as represented by a goddess. Durga represents rage.

I thought it was a tiger not a lion? Huh, oh well. It's still pretty.

Nope, it's a lion.
Though she is sometimes depicted with a tiger in her calmer moods.
