Durga is ocean-inspired by our ocean swimmers in Madhubani style.
Durga is believed to be created in water; viewed as a reflection of “Self”. The word Durga (दुर्गा) literally means “impassable”, “invincible, unassailable”. It is related to the word Durg (दुर्ग) which means “fortress, something difficult to defeat or pass”. According to Monier Monier-Williams, Durga is derived from the roots dur (difficult) and gam(pass, go through). According to Alain Daniélou, Durga means “beyond defeat”.
Ocean swimming takes the courage and strength of a Durga to swim that journey.
My canvases and paints are professional grade and are made using only the highest quality materials. Every canvas is gallery wrapped with the staples located on the back and they are wired and ready to hang. The canvas is 1.5 inches in depth which means you do not need a frame for displaying purposes. If you would like to see what this painting would look like on your wall you can send me a photograph of your living room, dining room, or every time you would like to hang the painting and I can do a mock-up for you. Just make sure that the photo has good light and is taken from a straight-on viewpoint.
