Kali is the predominant goddess in tantric painting which emphasizes the active female and passive male roles by depicting Kali striding or dancing upon a supine Siva.

The goddess as we see here is dark skinned yet radiant, subsuming within her all the colours in creation and symbolizing at the same time the destruction that she wrecks. Her image as the destroyer is quite graphic here - necklace of human heads, skull in hand, a dagger in her raised hand etc. She is richly bejewelled - a fancy crown, necklaces, armlets, bracelets etc. The dead body that she rests so the Shava, or literally 'corpse' which signifies many things - her triumph in general, the limits of time, and sometimes Shiva bereft of his power when his Shakti has emanated itself and left him.

The artist uses black background to enhance the dark aspect of the goddess. The niche has multiple and intricate floral patterns, giving the painting a decorative appeal as well.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
