There is much to Her that likens Her to Goddess Kali: the mundamala (garland of heads) cascading down Her torso and the snake coiled around Her skin. The lotus She holds in one hand is symbolic of creation; while the sickle, the severed demonhead, and the scissors in the rest of Her hands, of destruction (the major aspect). The scissors are indicative of how She snips off all forms of attachement in the atma.
The verdant backdrop of this painting has been done with stippling technique - a procedure that involves repetitive dotting on the paper with the tip of the brush. From the shadows and the florets in the foreground to the mysterious twilight of the far background, this piece of art exhibits great workmanship. Note the degree of perfection in the tender fingers and palms of the Goddess.
