A bronze Saivite Goddess

South India, late 18th century.

A bronze Saivite goddess standing in samabhanga with a typical South Indian conical headdress (mukuta), wearing a long dhoti, secured with a sash around the waist and the tripundra, the mark of Shiva, applied on the forehead. With bulbous eyes and a sharp aquiline nose, this form of Kali is elaborated with several pieces of jewellery. In her left hand, she holds the kapala (human skull) while the object in her right hand, probably a trisula, is damaged.
