As mentioned in the previous post, Goddess Durga is depicted with ten arms. She is known as the slayer of Mahishasura, literally the buffalo demon. He did not go down easily; they battled for ten days at the end of which Durga succeeded in slaying Mahishasura exactly at the change of lunar phases.
The weapons in each of her arms are divine, having been given to Durga by Indra, Brahma and other gods.
