Concept

I have painted the Goddess Shakti with her weapon Trishul. Shakti is the concept or personification of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as ‘The Great Divine Mother’ in Hinduism.
As the mother, she is known as Adi Parashakti or Adishakti. Hindus believe that Shakti is both responsible for creation and the agent of all change. Shakti is cosmic existence as well as liberation She is the only, eternal truth. The whole universe is her creation. She is the Great Goddess, and therefore the source of all other goddesses. She is supreme and regarded as the “Absolute Truth” in Shaktism.
Goddess Shakti holds a weapon Trishul which symbolizes creation, maintenance and destruction.
It is said in Hinduism, whenever there is an immense destruction, cruelty done in world, Shakti Swaroopa get empowered and destroys it.
