Crucifixion or Kali Bhavatarini (unfinished): surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
Hindu goddess’ name Kali in fact is a female allusion of the words Kalam or Black and Kala (Shiva) or Time in honor of being the first creation before light itself. Kali or Black refers to her being the entity of time and beyond time. Various cosmologies and Tantric beliefs worship her as the ultimate reality; she is also well-regarded as a redeemer of the universe or Bhavatarini. There are some ambiguous analogies in religious connotations between Christianity and Hinduism. At the time of Crist crucifixion, a person with such qualities as Kali most likely would be crucified as well. Besides, she would be considered as a pagan worshiper too. Even though Kali depicted as gloomy and violent, she is a hero of extermination of evil forces as well. The popular four-armed form and the ten-armed Kali depicted most often, although sometimes, she is having ten heads and ten legs as well. Each of her ten hands is carrying a various identifying weapon or ritual item which represents the power of one of the Hindu.
Note: this image is not intended as an insult to anybody’s believes. It reflects only author’s personal musings.
This is unfinished image so the content is not full and the concept is not clear. It has been in my files for years. However, long time ago it gave a boost to another Kali image, Kali the Destroyer. A simple, rather humorous thought, how a multi handed person such as a Hindu deity (in Kali’s case from 4 to 10 hands) could be crucified, gave the launch of the image. However, the result was not humorous, but rather terrifying. This is my old work that I have never showed before. The idea is still notable, but I do not think that I achieved much with its delivering. There is still more to be done, however, perhaps in a new design.

I can't begin to tell you how much pleasure I derive from your surrealist work. I think it's just amazing. Would it be possible for you to send me a 'signed' postcard for my collection? Or perhaps a signed poster? I would be really grateful.
