Here she stands robust and majestic, her hefty right leg trampling the chest of her husband Shiva. Shiva's trident lays by his side and his constant companion the serpent can be seen revering the goddess at her feet. The whole recumbent body of the moustached Shiva lies on a tiger skin, and the river Ganga flows sinuously from the top of his head.

The three-eyed Kali is wearing a paisley crown which is further adorned with the crescent moon. Perfectly matching the crown is a paisley necklace which rests in the chasm between her sturdy and lofty mountainous breasts. A choker of similar design define her neck. Both of her nostrils have jeweled studs, which is rare, since an Indian woman almost always wears the nose-ring in only one nostril. Coils of her long, luxurious hair cascade down her shoulders and back. Even though Kali is different from a conventional woman, she is not bereft of feminine charm.

There is a necklace of skulls around her neck which stands for the cycle of life and death. By extension, the sacrificial offerings required by Kali express the paradox that life requires death for sustenance and that without this replenishment there can be no renewal.

She has four arms each of which holds a different implement. The principal right one grips a long trident (trishul), the central prong of which has an eye carved on it. The second right hand holds a sickle.

In her upper left hand she holds the head of a demon by its hair. The blood pouring from this head is collected in a bowl held in the lower left hand.

One of the most intriguing aspect of Kali is her lolling tongue, which she tries to hold back by clenching between her teeth. Some devotees describe Kali's act of biting her large, protruding tongue, extending beyond her chin, as an expression of the control of the senses. Others say that she is ashamed of herself because she has stepped over the chest of her husband Shiva!

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

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.
