Nepalese Black Chlorite Stone Stele of Hindu Goddess Durga, ca. 12th Century. In excellent condition. 14 1/2" x 9" x 3 1/2". Ex: Christie's South Kenington. Durga riding on a tiger holding various weapons. She is the warrior goddess, whose mythology centers around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity and dharma of the good. Durga is the fierce form of the protective mother goddess, willing to unleash her anger against wrong, violence for liberation and destruction to empower creation. The word Durga literally means "impassable", "inaccessible", "invincible, "unassailable". It is related to the word Durg which means "fortress, something difficult to access, attain or pass".
