Durga Triumphant

In celebration of Durga Puja:  Durga Triumphant – pencil, Copic markers and Adobe Photoshop, 2017.

Shubo Bijoya! Happy Durga Puja to my family and friends celebrating around the world.   The various depictions of the Goddess Durga have her riding a lion or a tiger, but seeing as she is the universal mother and protector i think she would ride into battle on the most majestic, magical creature possible – so I prefer to merge a tiger and lion together.  Here she is after defeating the buffalo demon Mahishashura, freeing the universe from the oppression of evil.
