Chinnamasta The Goddess Who Cuts Off Her Own Head

Chinnamasta The Goddess Who Cuts Off Her Own Head

Chinnamasta The Goddess Who Cuts Off Her Own Head

Chinnamasta is one of the ten Mahavidya or forms of the Goddess Parvati.She has one of the most notable iconographies in the Hindu pantheon as she is usually depicted with a severed head with blood spurting from her neck. She is said to be a goddess of contradiction, a giver yet a taker of life, as well as being an embodiment of death as well as immortality. The narrative goes that when Dakiki and Varini asked the goddess for food, she then cuts her head, where the three spurts of blood are then directed to the mouths of the other two, drinking her blood. This also represents self-sacrifice which is often associated with Chinnamasta, too.

This painting portrays that very scenario in vibrant color.True to Madhubani tradition, the painting utilizes natural colors such as orange, red, blue, and green. Her skin is usually depicted red or orange as a symbol for the hibiscus plant or the sun. Art usually depicts her naked with only jewelry to cover her genitals but this painting added a creative touch and clothed her with patterns and stripes in lively colors. The flowers surrounding her are lotuses. On her left hand is her head while on the right is a scimitar or blade.She is also sometimes depicted with a mundamala (or necklace of skulls) as a sign that she is an aspect of the Divine Mother.The goddess is also stepping on Kamadeva (god of desire) and his partner Rati (also a goddess of desire) who are engaged in a sensual union on a cremation ground. This represents the relationship between blood and sex to the flow of life.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
