Durga riding a lion

I am not sure but I think it IS Hindu goddess Durga because the figure is dressed in a sari and riding a lion. The lion represents power, will and determination. Durga riding the lion symbolizes her mastery over all these qualities. This suggests to the devotee that one has to possess all these qualities to get over the demon of ego. This lovely sculpture decorates one of the houses in Kathmandu. Have you noticed a lamp in the lion's mouth? Cool...
