She takes away her devotees’ kala or darkness and in return bestows true light. In artistic depictions, Kali is seen as a naked, dark or blue-colored goddess who has multiple arms. Her tongue hangs out of her mouth while her red eyes glare. Her hair flows wild and she is wrapped with necklaces full of skulls. She typically carries a severed head and a sword, and around her waist is a belt made of severed arms. While her portrayal is fearsome, she actually liberates people from ego and the illusion of reality or maya. Kali is often shown to stand over her husband Shiva, with one foot on him.
