Kali

A while back a good friend in the United States asked me to create a  painting of Kali, the Goddess of death, time, and doomsday. Just after this request, I visited a market and came across a small mask which, to me, embodied the essence of Kali. I had to paint in the red tongue which is the symbol of Kali but, once I’d got this central figure sorted, the rest flowed very easily. I really enjoyed creating this painting.

Kali is a fearsome figure, associated with violence but she also embodies feminine energy, creativity and fertility. I’d forgotten about this painting and came across it yesterday so thought I’d post the different images I created from the original artwork. These are reproduced with the permission of the painting’s owner.
