  • Opaque watercolor heightened with gold on paper

Catalogue Note

The fearsome form of the Goddess Devi, victorious after her battle with the asuras, stands on the body of a smiling white Sada (corpse-like) Shiva.  She waves her attributes in her four arms: a sword, a skull, a lotus and a pair of scissors, wearing only a tiger skin skirt and ornaments.  On her head a turban of serpents.  Standing in the cemetery ground covered with human bones.  A flat yellow background with a red streaked cloudy blue sky above.
