Durga sits with her legs in a half lotus position, crossed in front of her, but not interlaced.  She has a narrow waist and rounded pointy breasts with broad shoulders.  Her front two hands hold a rosary (also in a reassuring gesture) and a pot. Her other hands fan out around her. Reading clockwise, she carries a wide assortment of weapons, an arrow, sword, feather, club, discus, trident and [?] on her right and conch, bell, noose, trident, club?, shield, bow and a kapala (skull cup).  She has large open eyes and a full mouth and nose.  She wears jewelry including necklaces and shoulder loops, armlets, bracelets and large floral earrings.  Her crown rest atop her head, but there are wing-like elements that fan out behind her ears.  She sits on a squared base with stylized lotus petals over simpler moldings. <br />
