Description Technical Specs
The thangka, a Tibetan and Nepalese Buddhist painting using a variety of painting techniques on cotton or silk, functions as one of the principle meditational tools in Buddhist practice.

The spouse of Mahakali (Kali) is extremely frightening. Mahakala has four arms, three eyes with fire as eyebrows, and is the brilliance of 10 million black fires of dissolution. At his side is his consort Kali, and they both represent the flow of time. Both Mahakala and Kali represent the ultimate destructive power of Brahman, and they are not bounded by any rules or regulations. They have the power to dissolve even time and space into themselves and exist as Void at the dissolution of the universe. They are also responsible for annihilating great evils and great daemons when other gods fail to do so. They annihilate men, women, animals, worlds, and the entire universe without mercy because they are Kala or Time in personified form, and Time is not bound by anything, does not show mercy, or wait for anything or anyone.
