The figure in this Untitled painting by Gogi Saroj Pal is an ode to the goddess Kali who is shown seated atop a tamed lion, celebrating the inner strength, resilience and the power of a woman. The lion’s subservient position as her mount adds to the statement of power that rests in the hands of the woman. Here is a powerful, commanding deity created in a visual language that is strictly guided by the artist’s own principles even if derived from indigenous imagery.
