The fierce-looking blue-complexioned Kali is charging against demons. Severed heads, hands and other organs of many of them lay scattered all over the ground. Crushed under her right foot lies the horse-demon Hayagriva, and with her right hand the goddess is flinging away the elephant demon Gaya. The force which her anatomy reveals is tremendous.
