I first came across the Hindu goddess Kali in my Rough Guide India eBook. Here’s how she’s described here:
Kali is the Hindu goddess (or Devi) of death, time, and doomsday and is often associated with sexuality and violence but is also considered a strong mother-figure and symbolic of motherly-love.
Whoa! Ganesha, go hide!
From the above site:
Kali’s most common pose in paintings is in her most fearsome guise as the slayer of demons, where she stands or dances with one foot on a collapsed Shiva and holds a severed head. She wears a skirt of severed human arms, a necklace of decapitated heads, and earrings of dead children, and she often has a terrifying expression with a lolling tongue which drips blood.
We’ve seen her only twice, I don’t think she’s common, but not sure
And then Ganesha (below post). Then Shiva and Parvati
The woman above was doing laps of the shrine with incense, nodding in with each passing. She walked clockwise, right to left, in the same way as you spin a prayer wheel
