Born in a small poor village In India, Shanti, ran away to find her place in the world. Lost in the rain forests of Northern India, the young girl found herself cornered by a Tiger. Fearing for her life the young girl cried out in prayer to the Mother Goddess.
Her prayers were answered when the Tiger instead of pouncing, reclined and began to speak to her. The Tigress revealed herself to be the Goddess Devi and empowered the girl from each of her incarnations, Durga (Invincibility), Kali (the ability to speed and slow time), Saraswati (great knowledge and wisdom),Sri Lakshmi (great beauty), and Parvati (the ability to sense lies).
Thus empowered the girl was given the name RAJAKUMARI PADMA, Princess Lotus.
Notes: Pulled from a lot of different images for this one and utilized the "warp" tool quite a bit. The Silk coming off the girdle is a blend of a silk texture as an overlay over a traditional "dodge and burn" base.
This is another original hero from my youth, who had a much more bland Anglified name. I updated her uniform but the origin is essentially the same.
The model is Priya Rai
