Grace your home or work space with this intricately handcrafted Shola Durga. In Hinduism, the goddess Durga, also known as Shakti or Devi, is the protective mother of the universe. Durga's legend centres around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity, and dharma, representing the power of good over evil.
According to folklore, Lord Shiva was on his way to marry Parvati when he requested Lord Vishwakarma, to make him a white crown for his wedding. When Vishwakarma wasn’t able to make the crown, Shiva created a man, who in turn created an exquisite crown, garland and other ornaments from the soft white core of the shola plant. The man was named “Malakar”.
The Shola craftsmen community mostly belongs to Bengal and is still referred as “Malakar” which means “Makers of Garlands”. Shola is an aquatic plant which has milky white sponge-like stems. The Malakars use tools such as blades and threads and spend months meticulously transforming these stems into beautiful decorative shola pieces.
