Kali - the Hindu god of death and destruction, also renewal and motherhood. She is sometimes depicted with ten arms, holding a sword, and with clothes made of human hands. In one battle Kali went on a killing spree. To stop her the Lord Shiva (her husband) threw himself at her feet, she was so stunned that she stuck out her tongue. Many pictures of Kali depict her standing with one foot on Shiva's chest and her tongue sticking out. She is most often pictured as being blue or black in color.

Kali ~ Shiva


Kali ("the black one") is the Hindu mother goddess, symbol of dissolution and destruction. She destroys ignorance, maintains the world order, and blesses and frees those who strive for the knowledge of God. In the Vedas the name is associated with Agni, the god of fire, who had seven flickering tongues of flame, of which Kali was the black, horrible tongue. This meaning of the word has meanwhile been replaced by the goddess Kali, the grim consort of Shiva.
