This is a chromolithograph of goddess Kali. This particular rendition of Kali resembles the original statue worshipped in the Kalighat temple. She is wearing a red garment and her dark black hair hangs loose behind her. She also wears a golden crown and a garland of skulls painted golden. She has red lips, fanged teeth and her tongue, somewhat disproportionate to the rest of the body, hangs out and is also painted blood red. She holds a human head dripping with blood and a sickle in two of her four arms while with the other two she portrays abhaya (no fear) and varada (boon) mudras. The icon is framed by two corinthian pillars and a curtain, while an umbrella attached to a pole emerges from behind.
