Feel the magic of Goddess Kali in this colorful painting depicting the triumph of Good over Evil.

This fine miniature is from the Pahari school & a replica of a 18th century miniature on handmade paper with stone colors .

Pahari painting (literal meaning a painting from the mountainous regions, pahar means a mountain in Hindi) is an umbrella term used for a form of Indian painting, originating from Himalayan Hill kingdoms of North India, during 17th-19th century.

Different incarnations of the goddess Parvati (adi shakti) pevail in the form of " Shakti". These incarnations were for killing the demons who were born on earth to rule and to establish the rule of evil on earth. But from time to time, whenever the ratio of evil increased , different incarnations of Devi (supreme Hindu Goddess) in the form of "Shakti " appeared on earth to kill these demon kings and to save and ensure peace and love on earth.

One of the incarnations of Devi was Kali who was sent to kill one such demon Raktabeej by drinking every drop of his blood. It is this episode of Hindu mythology that forms the subject of this artwork.
