Kali by Ajit Mookerjee

Book Description

Kali, according to Indian legend, sprang forth from the brow of the Great Goddess Durga during a battle to annihilate demonic male power. With her lolling tongue and necklace of severed heads, Kali has often been represented simply as death-dealing, cruel and horrific. But as Ajit Mookerjee shows, the same goddess is creator and nurturer, feminine energy, the essence of mother-lover. As divine mother, lotus goddess, she brings worlds to birth, sustains them and absorbs them, in a never-ending cycle of her own opening and closing. In India, worship of the goddess in her multiple forms, and the vision of the sacred as woman, have never ceased. Now in the west, in a time when feminist views are gathering more and more importance, in an age which is seeing a shift between the sexes, Kali and all that she represents take on a new relevance. Using a collection of paintings, sculptures and original writings, this is a celebration of Kali and an exploration of the rich meanings of feminine divinity.
