    An antique Java Style dancing bronze Kali or Mahakali sculpture in the 13th century Majapahit style.

    In the rich tapestry of Hindu mythology, amidst a pantheon of deities each embodying unique virtues and powers, stands Kali—a figure of both awe and reverence. With her fierce countenance, adorned with a garland of skulls and wielding weapons, Kali cuts a striking figure. However, beyond her fearsome appearance lies a deeper symbolism and profound significance within Hindu spirituality.

    The imagery of Kali is laden with symbolism, each aspect carrying profound meaning. Her dark complexion represents the eternal void from which all creation arises and into which all eventually merge—the primordial energy of the universe. Adorned with a garland of severed heads and wielding weapons, Kali symbolizes the annihilation of ego, ignorance, and negativity. Her wild and untamed appearance signifies the transcendence of societal norms and the embrace of one's true nature.

    In her hands she holds a Trident, a sword, a lotus flower and a kalasha. She wears a richly bejewelled dohti and upavita. His face has a downcast gaze.

    The kalasha is considered a symbol of abundance and "source of life" in the Vedas. It is referred to as "overflowing full vase" in the Vedas. The Kalasha is believed to contain amrita, the elixir of life, and thus is viewed as a symbol of abundance, wisdom, and immortality.

    Upon her head she wears a decorative Javanese style tiara in front of her Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises control over Positive and Negative attitudes. On her foreheads she has a third eye or urna.

    She has an aquiline nose and elongated earlobes with large ear rings. An aureole behind her head symbolizes her divinity. 

    Here, Kali is posed in her cosmic dance—the Tandava—wherein she simultaneously creates and destroys. This dance represents the cyclical nature of existence, where death is not an end but a transformation into new life. Kali's destructive aspect is not merely about annihilation but also about clearing the path for renewal and regeneration.

    Embracing Kali's Teachings: While Kali's fierce form may evoke fear and awe, her essence is one of compassion and liberation. By confronting our fears and embracing the transformative power of destruction, we pave the way for spiritual growth and enlightenment. Kali teaches us to confront the darkness within and without, leading us towards inner strength, resilience, and ultimate liberation from suffering.

    By embracing Kali's teachings, we unlock the transformative potential within ourselves, leading us towards greater understanding, compassion, and enlightenment.

    The sculpture has a wonderful verdigris patina.
