Kali is the most terrifying manifestation of the goddess. Although she is portrayed as a wild, violent and sometimes hideous being, she is the object of intense devotion. She is regarded as an independent deity though she is associated with Shiva also.

The four armed deity is seen here in an elaborate head dress and elegant jewellery and a long garland. Kali, justifying her name, is totally black. Her long, red tongue is protruding. Some devotees describe Kali's act of biting her large protruding tongue as an expression of the control of the senses. It is remarkable that despite her gruesome appearance, Kali holds such a key position in Hindu religious devotion.

Kali is the predominant goddess in Tantric painting, which emphasizes the active female, passive male roles by depicting Kali striding upon a supine Shiva. In one hand, she holds a chopper and in the other hand on the same side, she holds a beheaded head. To this traditional theme the artist has added a chequered, black and white tiled floor. Kali is placed in a red niche, outside which is sky blue. The characteristic feature of batik, the crackle, shows prominently on red as well as the blue.


Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
