The four-armed Durga sits on a stylized crouching lion with her right leg pendant and the left one across her body.  Her front right hand extends down with palm outwards in a boon giving gesture while the back right hand holds a sword.  Her left font hand holds a fruit or flower bud while her back left hand holds a shield. The whole is simply carved with rather subdued jewelry, but she does wear necklaces, bracelets, armlets and loose anklets as well as large circular earrings and a diadem across her forehead.  Her hair is arranged behind the diadem. The stele is subtly pointed and its only decoration is a band along the outside, although a throne is suggested at her knees.  A highly stylized lotus supports her right foot at the base.<br />

Durga on her lion mount

Gift of Dr. and Mrs. Leo S. Figiel and Dr. and Mrs. Steven J. Figiel
1981/1.315
This column fragment consists of a base with a seated jina in the center with a tiered umbrella above him under an elaborate arch flanked by two figures to either side—two male and dancing females at the outside.  Three virtually identical bands above it represent smaller seated jinas in less elaborate pavilions.  A pair of male cauri bearers with a devotional male on the outside flanks each of the two central figures.  The top figure is flanked by the pair of cauri bearers, but with an elephant surmounted by a lion figure on either side.   There is no cognizance present to identify any of the four jinas, all are depicted in lotus position and their hands in dhyana mudra, a meditation gesture.   <br />

The two-armed figure dances with his left leg raised and wrapped around a club.  His left arm is extended down his body and holds onto the club and his right hand is raised almost to his ear. He wears much of jewelry including bracelets, anklets, necklaces with should loops and an elaborate belt almost forming an apron.  His stomach protrudes over the belt.  He also has large earrings in the form of roaring lions and a jewel encrusted crown.  His eyes bulge out and his mouth is open showing his teeth.  The whole is badly weathered and not nearly as crisp as his partner, 1980/2.290.<br />
