    In Praise of Goddess Durga by Panchugopal Dutta (2002)
    21.5 in x 14 in, Watercolour on Board

    New artwork uploaded....This painting is filled with symbolism and steeped in stories from the Hindu mythology. On the lower left corner, the green face of the deity signifies Lord Rama. In essence this painting could describe his worship of Goddess Durga known as Akalbodhan. Akaal Bodhan (Bengali: অকাল বোধন) is the worship of Durga—an incarnation of Devi—in the month of Ashwin, an uncustomary time for commencement of the worship. Per Wikipedia, in the Ramayana, Rama goes to Lanka to rescue his abducted wife, Sita, from the grip of Ravana, the king of the Demons in Lanka. Before starting for his battle with Ravana, Rama wanted the blessings of Devi Durga. He came to know that the Goddess would be pleased only if she is worshipped with 108 Neel Kamal (blue lotuses). After travelling the whole world, Rama could gather only one hundred and seven of them. He finally decided to offer one of his eyes, which resembled blue lotuses.
