Drawn using a pen-type instrument with clean strokes, this painting is about 30-40 years old.

A totally new type of art tp which I have not been exposed much!

Characters in Hindu mythology have characteristics that are non-human. In this case, Durga has several arms. My interpretation is that this is a “visual metaphor”. In order to convey the concept of “multi-tasking” the visual shown is that of 10 hands! Sounds right doesn’t it?
