The Unusual Mahakali With Ten Heads, Ten Arms, And Ten Legs (Made In Nepal)

The ferocious deity, Mahakali, is the quintessential image of the destructive power of Her spouse, Shiva (from the Hindu trinity comprising of Brahma who creates, and Vishnu who preserves). The name Kali is derived from the Sanskrit 'kal', which means time; hence, Kali lords over time itself. Like time She is all-devouring as well as all-encompassing. Such superlative destructive power over existence as we know it calls for awe-inspiring iconography, like in this flawlessly sculpted Mahakali icon made in the recesses of Nepal.

Her skin, the colour of the inky tropical skies at dusk, is the embodiment of tamas. The usual aspects of the Kali iconography include the long garland of the heads of adharmees She has just slayed, the skirt of severed human arms She wears that are an offering by Her devotees of their karma, and Her luscious tongue protruding out of Her mouth in a stance that is decidedly bloodthirsty. What makes this a signature, one-of-a-kind Mahakali are the ten crowned heads and the ten limbs each. While the composure of each of Her beauteous countenances is superbly fierce, it is set off by the sheer variety of weapons and ritual implements in each of Her intricately sculpted hands. With five pairs of legs to match, the deity is in the middle of a tandava ritual on a battlefield lain with vanquished adharmees and their fallen weapons, embossed on Her enormous shield. Her luxuriant, dishevelled tresses complete the iconography, a symbol of Her untramelled freedom (this lends Her the name, Muktakesi).

Her form is characteristically naked punctuated by hints of shringar at the neck, waist, wrists, and ankles. Despite Her divinely fierce portrayal, it is impossible to miss the supple beauty of Her figure and the feminine appeal of Her sookshma features. Note how the third eye has been carved onto the temples of each Kali head in this Mahakali statue.

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.
