About this Product

An action figure of the warrior goddess Durga, the first in a series of figures celebrating makers and doers from world history and world culture. ________________________________________________________________________________________ Durga is best known in Hindu myth for triumphing over a world-terrorizing demon when all of the other gods had failed. In some versions of the story, the demon had been granted a boon that only a woman could kill him; thinking this was impossible, this added yet another thick and slimy layer of arrogance to his already scintillating personality. However, Durga, riding a lion, bristling with weapons, and quite unimpressed with his behavior, soundly defeated him. Her story is over a thousand years old, but is still celebrated in India today. ________________________________________________________________________________________ This action figure draws on traditional South Indian iconography, especially 10th-century Chola bronze statues, known for their delicate detailing and elegant form. Durga is about 15 cm tall (~6"), is lavishly decked in ornate jewelry, and wears finely modeled garments. She comes with a full array of detailed hand parts, and many weapons: a flying discus, a sword, a shield, a drum, a conch shell, a stringable bow, a quiver with arrows, a club, and a trident. Each element was carefully researched, based on centuries-old Indian jewelry, sculpture, and weaponry - and was modeled from scratch in great detail (down to individual pearls and fingernails). ________________________________________________________________________________________ Befitting a powerful and graceful warrior, Durga is fully articulated. In this version of the action figure, she has 28 points of articulation, from her head, to all of her arms, to her ankles. She is the first action figure in the world to have 10 articulated arms! ________________________________________________________________________________________ Durga is the first in a series of "Heroes of the World" action figures celebrating makers and doers from around the world, including warriors, scientists, artists, engineers, designers, and inventors. The goal of the series? To introduce inspiring characters and new role models whose stories encourage us to overcome obstacles and pursue our dreams. The next figures in the line are likely to be Ada Lovelace, Athena, Leonardo da Vinci, and Nikola Tesla. ________________________________________________________________________________________ Durga placed second in the Shapeways + Formlabs 2014 "Prototype to Product" competition. This action figure is in development for an expected release in early 2015. For updates, please follow @brillist on Twitter. Thanks for taking a look!
