She is a wheatish fair, as is the standard of beauty of the North. The painter has depicted Her ashtabhujadhari form; despite her all-important weapons being intact, She has laid them down for a bit. Instead, alta-tattooed hands of Her anterior arms are cradling a lotus and showering blessings. Her delicate bootidar red saree is cinched at the waist with a gold kamarband. A garland of fresh flowers completes Her resplendent shringar. Even Her simhavahana projects a kingly calm and reserve. Zoom in on its mane to appreciate the superb level of detail that has gone into the painting, its glory a fine match for the Devi’s ample black tresses (visible even around Her lower limbs). The gold crown that sits on Her brow, the blinding halo that frames Her face, are in keeping with the light emanating from those large lifelike eyes.
