Kali काली

This picture represents Kali, a hindu goddess. Her name means lord of death, darkness, death or time. The figure has many facettes and is worth studying. In her left hand you see the double Varja, in itself a very complex symbol, wich hints to the thunderbolt, an archaic divine weapon, that can be found in many cultures, starting in babylonian mythology all the way up to the norse mythology.
