c. 1999, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. This website was made possible the Smithsonian Educational Outreach Fund. The exhibition, Devi: The Great Goddess, was made possible by generous grants from Enron/Enron Oil & Gas International, the Rockefeller Foundation, The Starr Foundation, Hughes Network Systems, and the ILA Foundation, Chicago.

I am enormously indebted to Vidya Dehejia, Associate Director and Chief Curator of the Freer and Sackler Galleries, curator of Devi: The Great Goddess, and editor and author of a volume of the same title from which I have drawn extensively. I would also like to thank Michael Edson, Amita Sarin, John Tsantes, and Frances Yeh from the Freer and Sackler Galleries for their assistance.
