Goddess Kali

Dimensions : 8 x 4 x 2 Inches

Kali is seen standing on a rocky surface, with her right leg on the demon Raktabija, who she has killed. Garlanded with skulls, her tongue protruding from her mouth and holding a trident in one hand, the polished surface of the brass idol of the Goddess glows with her divine energy.

In her other three arms she holds a sword, a skull and a drum, symbolizing different aspects of the worship of Kali. The details of the rocks, the fallen demon, the ornaments of the Goddess, the circle of energy around her head and the hair flowing down her back, exemplify the artistry of the Indian handicraft tradition.

This sculpture weighs 1500 g and is available in dimensions of 8” x 4” x 2”.

About Goddess Kali

Goddess Kali is worshipped as the Goddess of destruction, a fearful manifestation of Parvati, an incarnation of the Devi or Mother Goddess. In Hindu mythology, the Gods were troubled by the fearsome demon Raktabija. Fighting with the demon Raktabija was an impossible feat because every drop of his blood that fell to the ground, gave rise to another demon. The Gods went to Shiva – the god of destruction in the Hindu trinity - for help. Shiva was deep in meditation but his consort Parvati decided to act and in the ferocious form of Kali set out to kill the demon.

Kali spread her tongue over the battlefield to ensure Raktabija’s blood did not touch the ground and asked the gods to attack. Raktabija was defeated and Kali, intoxicated with the demon’s blood, destroyed his army and decorated her form with the skulls and limbs of the demons she had killed.
