This is certainly Arya Tara. The scissors and skirt are the giveaway.

Kali is the Hindu Goddess of Time, Death, Destruction. She helps her followers see death and suffering as an illusion. She stands on her husband Shiva, because in Her terrible dance of destruction where she destroys evil, the whole world was in danger of being destroyed. Only when Shiva lay at Her feet could stop her dance. When she saw she was trampling on him, her rage stopped and she calmed.

The scissors held in the lower right hand may indicate that this is Tara preparing for Chhinnamasta.
