Kali. Y. G. Srimati  (Indian, 1927–2007)

Kali is striding across a turbulent landscape of mottled cloudlike formations. Her power is embodied in her movement and in the animation of her skirt composed of strands of human skulls, which echoes the flaying movement of her ten arms. Together they create a cosmic circle of frightful energy. This authoritative representation demonstrates the artist’s almost subliminal understanding of the power of the goddess.
