Kali is the Hindu goddess of death, time and rebirth. Her name means both 'she who is black' and 'she who is death'.
As both a fearsome warrior and the embodiment of 'shakti' - feminine energy, creativity and fertility, Evie became fascinated with the goddess during her years living and working in the company of the Indian Assassins.
Kali is often portrayed in her most fearsome guise as the slayer of demons, where she stands or dances with one foot on a collapsed Shiva and holds a severed head.
She wears a skirt of severed human arms, a necklace of decapitated heads, and earrings of dead children, and she often has a terrifying expression with a lolling tongue which drips blood.
Her earliest appearance in Hindu cosmology is that of a destroyer principally of evil forces.
Evie gifted her brother with this statue of Kali the Destroyer over a decade ago, when Jacob came to learn some of the Indian Assassins' techniques.
