Work in progress, Chinnamastaa
Chinnamastaa is one of the ten characteristics of the Goddess Durga. She is usually sitting on the god of love Madana in sexual intercourse with his lover Rati. The whole image represents the unification of creation, sex and death, all equally necessary parts of the manifested Universe. Here Chinnamastaa is sitting on an empty bed to show that the balance of life and sex is lost and death is all there is.
