Avyapadeśyā Kālī the goddess with no name and no form Kali
Digital file type(s): 1 JPG
Avapadesya's name means “indescribable” and that makes illustrating her a unique challenge. She is beyond all forms and without name.
Avapadesya is very similar to Kali, and in fact you could say she is an aspect of Kali - and yet she is a bit different.
She shines like the sun and also like the a full, waveless ocean. She is emaciated, still, ghostily there, but not there. You see her more when you don't look, and she appears just out of the corner of your eye, in a glint of a wave or a waft of wind. She was popular in Jammu and Kashmir, India.
Avapadesya is one of 12 goddess illustrations for the book "A Garland of Forgotten Goddesses. You can read more about her there, or on the author Michael Slouber's blog, https://garudam.info/, as he posts a weekly piece on each of the goddesses in his book.

It's such a beautiful image as is, I don't know if I want to color it! I love this is offered as an option though, or enjoyed as it original peaceful nature 💛
The finished product exceeded my expectations. The paper it is printed on is quite thick. The manner of printing is one of the best I’ve seen. It really does replicate the painted experience. Wow! I expect this will benefit my practice tremendously. I am very grateful!
This is an excellent, highly enjoyable piece. If it's a print, I can't tell. Colors and detail are brilliant!
One of the best rendering of Chakrasamvara that I have found by a living artist. Laura is my go to thangka master. The saturated colors are brilliant and alive.
