This rare statue of Bhadrakali worshipped greatly in South India sits on a heighted double pedestal with lotus shape scribbled in extreme accuracy. It is sculpted out of natural blocks of diorite and granite with the white markings scratched in perfection, highlighting her various attributes and essentialities. She is the fierce form of goddess Shakti, also associated with the tantric tradition. In spite of her fearful appearance, she forms a loving and caring bond with her devotees.
In this statue, Bhadrakali sits in a dreadful posture with eight hands holding her various sacred weapons and flames burning out from her head. Her face is that of the ferocious lion with a protruding tongue, one also sits on the pedestal complementing her terrible form. The unique multilayered crown resembles the structure of a South Indian temple and the Sheshnag peeping out above her head. The sculpture is exceptionally scored applauding the sculptor’s hardwork, patience and tenuity.
