Preoccupation with transforming the body transcends cultures.
In Hinduism, the Goddess Durga is the mother of the universe believed to be the power behind the creation, preservation, and destruction of the world. She is depicted as having eight or ten hands. These represent eight quadrants or ten directions in Hinduism. This suggests that she protects the devotees from all directions.
Durga is also depicted as having a symmetrically balanced face immortalized in a restful state (not a tired or stressed expression). Her lips are upturned and eyes alert appearing yet gently focused on the viewer. Durga is also referred to as “Triyambake” meaning the three eyed Goddess with symmetry to each. The left eye represents desire, the right eye represents action, and the central eye represents knowledge.
