Kali is one of the most enigmatic deities of the modern era and represents the time that is depleting day by day and destroying the world. She is the supreme energy responsible for dissolution of the created universe, therefore she is depicted as awe striking and fearful. She is the mother of all, responsible for destruction as well as creation; demolition of the evil and worse for the formation of good for mankind.
This black colored stone statue is symbolic of Kali in her fiercest form, as black represents anger and fury. Standing in her challenging posture, she represents wrathfulness; left leg is on the pedestal and right kept on Shiva’s (her husband) chest, as a reaction of being disturbed by him while performing her victory dance, but on the contrary, the tongue lolling out is illustrative of realizing her guilt and shame of stepping on Shiva. She wears a fierce garland of skulls representing the cosmic sounds from which the entire creation has proceeded. Right hand is in a gesture of blessing and fearlessness; left hand holds a cup of blood of the evil doers. In her rear hands, she holds a skull symbolizing ego and a scimitar to show power respectively. She adorns an apparel of human hands reflecting human acts that rotate through life. Golden colored aureole and matching jewels are beautifully contrasting the black colored body with skin colored palms and feet. Her long disheveled hair represents her freedom from the strong and peaceful forces of time.
This unique statue is crafted from a single stone with ultimate perfection, maintaining its aura and beauty.
How to clean and maintain marble statues?
Marble has been a preferred material for sculptors and artists for more than a thousand years. It is a rock that undergoes metamorphism which causes recrystallization of the original carbonate mineral grains. Marble comes in various colors, designs, and dimensions. Pure white marble is the most preferred type of marble for making sculptures and statues since time immemorial. White marble is especially used for sculpting stone monumental sculptures since ancient times. The natural shine and luster of the carbonate crystals of white marble give a lavish and beautiful appearance to the statue.
Marble stone statues are highly durable and can even withstand harsh weather conditions without getting corroded, therefore, they can be kept indoors or outdoors without getting damaged or weathered. Although these statues can last for many decades, their regular care and cleaning are essential to increase their longevity and beautiful appearance.
Marble statues need periodical cleaning to maintain their flawless look. However, harsh and deep cleaning can result in making the statue look dull. If your marble statue is withering away, it is recommended to take the help of a professional cleaner. Marble is a delicate material and therefore needs proper care.
