A Fighting Titan

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This titan, or demon, was conquered by the warrior-goddess Durga, who hurled a discus at him. This small sculpture was once part of a group that included the figure of Durga. The demon is shown not just as a conquered enemy but as a devotee-to be struck by Durga's discus is actually a blessing.
