In the physical moments of love it is generally accepted that the male is on top. But not for our Mother Kali. A vigorous and aggressive feminist if ever there was one, ancients texts are unanimous in recognizing her preference for the game of love where it is the woman who comes out tops. This is not the only contrary aspect about her. Rather than utter sweet nothings in the ears of her beloved husband Shiva she straddles atop him in a triumphal gesture of victory. She does recognize that what she does is contrary to the accepted norms for a Hindu wife. But Kali is not herself if she does not annihilate the traditional and 'normal.' Even then she sticks out her tongue as if recognizing that in humiliating the honorable Shiva to this extent she may have outdone even herself.

But who are we to interfere in the matters of a husband and wife, between our mothers and fathers? Here we are worrying about him and all Shiva does in this moment of 'defeat' is make a gesture of boon-granting with his hand. Oh! how deep their love is. We ordinary mortals are not equipped with the intellectual equipment to fathom the intensity of their affection, but we can certainly develop our instinctive selves, and then realize the true and archetypal truth of Mother Kali.

In this sculpture the Mother slides over her husband's body. When the middle part of her anatomy meets that of Shiva, the male and female elements of the universe will be fully enjoined and thus there will be the harmony of the two elements. Until then as Kali slides over Shiva's body, as Shakti goes to meet her Shiva, the constant cycle of samsara will go on and on. On and on......
