The materialization of the figure of the goddess in her terrible mood is always different. This painting by a primitives painter has elemental effect. The artist has suggested the power of the goddess by composing large eyes and a lolling tongue. The naive artist notices fundamental characteristics and makes bio-physiological bodily movements into heroic human forms, suggesting divinities.
The impact of this image of Goddess Kali is massive by the sheer size of it. Her face and neck occupy the entire canvas. Jet black is used to denote her dark aspect. The necklace of heads helps to give a fearsome impression, while her nose-ring emphasizes her feminine beauty. The red hanging tongue adds to the mood. Actually, Kali is all for the aggressive woman, and represents the dominant instinct lying latent within the depths of a woman's tormented soul. This torment and pain find vent and expression in Kali's wrath.
