There are many words to describe Kali. She is wrathful; nay, fierce; downright bloodthirsty. Her personality centres on that terror-inducing appearance that comprises inky black nakedness and a mass of hair like unforgiving wilderness. The Devi sculpture that you see on this page, however, is a mask composition that draws attention to a singular aspect of Her iconography.


Fashioned from wood, it depicts an expressive face with an elongated bone structure. The narrow brow resembles the wings of an albatross in motion. Beneath the brow is a pair of large eyes, progressively set from the outer to the inner corners. A wide-set nose betwixt the same, with the nostrils and the philtrum crinkled upwards to accommodate the bared jaws. A deep crimson tongue of gigantic proportion emerges from that all-devouring mouth.


Despite the ferocity, the beauty of Her features is undeniable. A crown of wild, pointed leaves sits on Her flat-topped head. Locks of Her hair emerge from the rim of the crown on Her temple, below which is the rudimentary engraving a third organ of vision. Poised on a smooth, dark brown base of the same medium, the rich ivory-gold colour of the face makes for a sharp contrast.
