This impacting sculpture is that of the famous Goddess Kali. Her name, which speaks volumes about her supreme power, is the feminine form of the Sanskrit word 'Kala', meaning time. While many manifestations of this Great Goddess are known, here she is depicted in her highest aspect, namely Mahakali, or the 'Great Time.' Typically, Mahakali has ten hands, holding various elements. Her this epithet signifies that though it is time which devours everything, it is only Mahakali who can devour time itself.

The sculptor has depicted the goddess with a sturdy form, her feminine charm amply highlighted with a nosering and necklaces. One necklace however definitely overshadows all the rest. It is the longest one, ending just at the rim of her grotesque skirt made up of severed human hands. This necklace is formed of human skulls, strung tightly together. This is an expression of the Devi's destructive aspect. Her eyes remind one of lotus petals and are quite intoxicating on a close inspection. The lolling tongue though, perhaps mocking (and rightly so) our incompetent attempts at understanding her incomprehensibility, does indicate that she not a 'mere woman', but rather the infinite fount from which pours forth the Shakti maintaining this entire universe. Her long strands of hair showers like a curtain behind her.

The image of the recumbent Lord Shiva lying under her feet represents him as the passive potential of creation and Kali as his Shakti. The generic term Shakti denotes the Universal feminine creative principle and the energizing force behind all male divinity including Shiva. Shakti is known by the general name Devi, from the root 'div', meaning to shine. She is the Shining One, who is given different names in different places and in different appearances, as the symbol of the life-giving powers of the Universe. It is she that powers him. This Shakti is expressed as the i in Shiva's name. Without this i, Shiva becomes Shva, which in Sanskrit means a corpse. Thus suggesting that without his Shakti, Shiva is powerless or inert.

This sculpture was created in the city of Jaipur, the capital city of the state of Rajasthan.
