In the hierarchy of manifestation Kali stands as the highest, the most abstract, aspect of divinity. It is under her fierce aspect of Kali, that the consort of Shiva (Parvati) is mainly worshipped.

The dark, naked Kali stands with unbound and disheveled hair. She wears a garland of Skulls, a girdle of human hands – all still soaked in blood. The artist probably found the nakedness of Kali too discomfiting and therefore has adorned her with exquisite jewelry, besides a fancy crown. She stands on Shiva's chest, holds in her hand a blood stained scythe and a freshly cut human head; the blood dripping from the male head is collected in a cranium of a skull. In her right hand she holds Shiva's attribute, the trident. Kali's face is shown in profile; the blood shot eyes looking fearsome and the tongue is outstretched and smeared with blood.

The corpse of Shiva lies on the ground even as he still holds the drum and the trident. Snakes abound on his body. The scene is that of a cremation ground with bones and skulls scattered around; the smoke rising from the burning pyres; in fact the environment looks as fearful as the form of Kali herself.

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.
