The name Kali comes from the Sanskrit root word meaning time. She has many interpretations. One is that the heads that are in a garland around her neck, represent the cutting off of the ego - the death of the ego. She is also seen standing upon her consort Shiva. Together they represent destroying unreality. In her left hand she holds the head of the demon Raktabija, who she defeated in battle. Kali is compassionate and loving to her children.

I received this last Thursday and have it on a shelf in my living room. It looks better in real life than in the picture.
