This polychromed marble sculpture probably represents the Hindu goddess Durga seated on a tiger. Durga was a warrior deity and is most celebrated for her defeat of the demon Mahishasura. In this representation she has four arms, each carrying a weapon, including a trident and a sword which she brandishes above her head. The goddess is elaborately clothed in gold and red and wears a tiara. The details of the leopard’s skin and tongue are outlined in red and black pigment.
