A Physical Obstruction in the Path of Destruction Despite her intimidating appearance, Kali is of central importance in Tantrism and Bengali Sakta devotionalism. She is always described as having a terrible frightening appearance.

That this goddess has benevolent and malevolent traits is proved by the two sets of hands. If in her left hands, she holds a weapon and a severed head, the two right hands are raised in 'abhaya' and 'varada' gestures. Her face is painted in profile – a bulging, blood shot eye, tongue hanging out and the blood smeared expression, add to her fearful look. A garland of skulls, a girdle of human hands and a serpent waistband adorn her body besides other ornaments. Her long hair let loose, cover her entire back.

A supine Shiva lies on a leopard skin, tiger skin for clothing and serpents for ornaments. After killing demons and drinking their blood, Kali loses all control and kills randomly until Shiva intervenes. He lies there as a physical obstacle in the path of destructive Kali.

The scene is set in her favorite haunt, the cremation ground, where bats and vultures can be seen. Places associated with her heighten Kali's fearsome nature.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
