Dashabhuja Kali, As Invincible As She Gets
Undeniably the fiercest of the Hindu devi pantheon, the very picture of Mother Kali strikes terror into the heart of the adharmee. Her skin is an all-encompassing dark black; Her form, a fearless naked; and shringar, minimal. The complexion is set off by the mercilessly bloodthirsty composure of countenance, with that glittering bit of visible tongue, that is an indispensable part of Her iconography. The only things that clothe Her are garlands of adharmees' heads that She has severed, and a girdle of severed arms that Her karma-yogi devotees have offered to Her (this is because one observes one's karma with the hands). Instead of the usual silks and jewels that grace the rest of the devis, the seat of Kali's personality lies in the numerous divine weapons She holds in each of Her ten (dasha) arms (bhuja).
This lifelike sculpture of the Devi will add to your space a strong aura of the wrathful and the invincible. Zooming in on Her limbs and face will enable you to appreciate the great skill that has gone into putting together such an effective portrayal - the lifelike musculature, the high-precision digits, and the superbly smooth skin. No wonder they call Her Kali because She is said to have conquered kal (time) itself in Her unflinching pursuit of dharm across time and space. One of Her legs is raised and positioned on the chest of Her supine husband, the Lord Shiva Himself, who succumbs to Her ferocity. What distinguish this composition from your run-of-the-mill Kali sculptures are the looming crown and the ornate double-lotus pedestal, each of which has been engraved with great skill and labour.
